We champion purpose-driven founders in their journey to lasting impact and commercial success

Beliefs

Profit and purpose can be a virtuous cycle

Solving humanity's biggest problems can provide superior financial returns. Tech-enabled companies can have significant impact at scale BUT Tech companies and impact investors largely live in different worlds. Avesta can bridge these worlds to harness the tech world toward positive impact.
