Aavishkaar Venture Fund's Vineet Rai proves investors can exit social ... - Economic Times | Inclusive Innovation, Frugal Innovation, Doing more with less for more. | Scoop.it

Eleven years have gone by since Vineet Rai started sowing into social enterprises - firms that are high on common good, but perhaps slow and low on profitability. He is now harvesting his first crop.

Aavishkaar Social Venture Fund, which he started in 2001, recently sold its 23% stake in Rangsutra, an artisan-owned handicrafts company, to three high net worth individuals. He earned a 42% internal rate of return (IRR) on his investment of Rs 22 lakh made in 2007. Rangsutra supplies handicrafts to Fab India. This is his third profitable exit from a social enterprise in two years.
