Remarks by USAID/RDMA Mission Director Michael Yates at the announcement of Shujog Impact Investment Grant to support Asia Socia
December 8, 2014

The idea behind Shujog is fairly simple.  Impact investors are looking for a pipeline of businesses to invest in that generate both financial and social returns. Yet these investors are often unable to connect with early-stage entrepreneurs, and that means there is so much potential still waiting to be tapped on both sides.  Shujog’s ACTS program, along with partners Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan Chase, and the Rockefeller Foundation, will help bring them together, by providing Assistance for Capacity Building and Technical Services (ACTS).  This will help social enterprises to better attract investment; scale their businesses; and increase their impact.
