Investing for Impact in India ( I-4) is a technology-based marketplace to enable the achievement of India’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by solving for challenges around SDG planning, financing and monitoring. India currently faces a large SDG funding gap of 6.2% of GDP or over $200 billion per year. At the same time, the global impact investing market is immense, being valued at over $700 billion, with only a small proportion of these investments flowing to India. The I-4 platform is designed to channelize the funding available nationally and globally into projects that drive SDGs in India. It brings together all the stakeholders involved in the SDG ecosystem, enabling them to achieve their organizational and social objectives.
