Who We Are

INSAAN MEANS HUMAN

Insaan is a boutique impact investment entity that allocates philanthropic capital to tackle poverty.

Our mission is to engage in catalytic philanthropy that changes the lives of many, for better, for good.

We do this by investing in early stage ventures that create employment and/or deliver a product or service relevant to the poor.

Insaan works with philanthropists who want their giving to be more impactful.

We re-invest all revenues from our investments in new ventures.

HOW WE WORK

We connect those who want a better world with those in need and measure
that lives are indeed being changed, for the better, and for good.

Partner

Insaan was founded with support from the Pierre and Pamela Omidyar Fund. We work with families, individuals, corporate and institutional donors.

Select

We work through our networks to find ventures involved in education, health and supply chain. We get to know the organizations and people within them.

Measure

We meet the end-users or beneficiaries in the field. We engage them, listen, ask questions, and try to understand their vision of a better life – in their own words.

Grow

We disburse funds through equity or grant and continue to work closely with ventures over the life of the funding. We help ventures grow so they can better serve the poor.

WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Our work derives from our values, and not the reverse.
Insaan is an intellectual and ethical engagement that represents our team’s long-standing dedication to changing the lives of the poor.

People-Centered Systems
