The Artha Platform ("Artha" or "Artha Platform")
is an online community and website dedicated to building relationships between impact
investors and donors, and social entrepreneurs and capacity building support organizations
(all "Sector Participants" or "Artha community")
working on or in India. It is an independent initiative supported by Rianta Philanthropy
Ltd ("Rianta Philanthropy Ltd." or "RP Ltd.").
How the Artha platform works
Artha offers a closed, secure space for all Sector Participants keen on supporting
the work of small and growing enterprises in India. It grows by invitation only,
and there is no fee to join. Investors seeking to gain greater understanding and comfort
with enterprises listed on the project pipeline may work with these 3rd Parties
or alternatively choose to complete Due Diligence themselves. This fee is transacted
offline. All revenues that may be generated by Artha are designated for covering
the operating costs of the website.
Activity on the Artha Platform is undertaken within a small cluster of practitioners
who tend to know one another and who work closely together; disclosure regarding
progress on contracted due diligence activities is thus a fundamental basis for
the operation of the website, and is based on an 'honor code'. Users are expected
to generally uphold transparency and information sharing as core values of this
community. Please see Terms and Conditions for further
detail. Should an investor choose to conduct due diligence in-house or with a party
external to the platform, no fees are charged.
You must be connected to an organization in each of the following core activity
groups to have access:
1. Impact Investors within this online community can find information about
the Base of the Pyramid ("BoP") sectors in India and better
coordinate on knowledge sharing, learning and due diligence;
2. Entrepreneurs can make sure that their enterprises are given exposure to
the most active, serious impact investor base; and
3. Intermediaries specializing in due diligence, business development and
capacity building can bid on projects as they become
available and build their businesses.
The platform offers Ultra High Net Worth ("UHNW") individuals and their family offices,
social funds, and foundations the opportunity to use our web architecture and apply
it to the country/ies of their choice. Contact us
