We are delighted to announce that WNDYR's team members are joining forces with Beyond Capital’s Ambassador Program. Our team will be supporting Beyond Capital through individual financial contributions that will invest in impactful, early-stage businesses and funding their current portfolio of businesses throughout India, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Tanzania.

These contributions will fund businesses that increase the quality of life and alleviate poverty in low-income communities by creating greater access to:

  • Health care
  • Food security
  • Sanitation
  • Financial inclusion
  • Clean energy

As WNDYR and Pattyrn’s co-founders, Claire and I knew we wanted to encourage our team to collectively make a global impact through small contributions to impactful social enterprises. Now, thanks to each and every one of our team members' contributions, we are able to support Beyond Capital's vision to sustainably increase the standard of living for consumers at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

In the 11 years since its founding, Beyond Capital has generated a positive portfolio return and delivered three exits. In addition, they’ve enabled their portfolio companies to raise 100 times the invested capital and achieve sustainable growth with pro bono and mentoring services valued at $550,000. 

Every $1 Beyond Capital invests reaches 28 people, including 22 women, in underserved communities. Their impact reaches over sixteen million people living in low-income communities, including eleven million women.

Claire and I want to thank our WNDYR team for personally contributing financially to create more equitable conditions in the workplace alongside Beyond Capital. Together, we strive to make a difference for all.
