Ms. Ragini Bajaj Chaudhary, IRMA alumna of the 12th PGDRM batch and CEO, India - GrayMatters Capital, delivered an A Talk at IRMA on 22nd April, 2019.
During the session titled Impact Investment & Microfinance, she defined impact investing, its elements and how the perception around impact investing has changed in the last decade.
Talking about the gender gap in investing, she quoted from an analysis by Boston Consulting Group that says that on an average, women founders receive $1 million+ less than men when they pitch their ideas to investors for early-stage capital. She went on to mention that despite that, businesses founded by women ultimately deliver higher revenue - generating 10% more in cumulative revenue over a five-year period.
