If you are a first or second time impact fund manager interested in working with us and joining the Capria network, please download the application and submit your information. We review applications on an ongoing basis and we are currently evaluating applications for Cohort 2. If you are interested in participating in a future Cohort, feel free to submit your application as soon as it is ready. We look forward to hearing from you.

Capria is currently only processing applications from teams investing in emerging markets.  We will potentially consider applications from teams based in developed markets at a later date.

Our Business Model: We provide risk capital and significant multi-year acceleration services and receive a share of management revenues and profits from the created fund(s) in return. We look to align interests based on each fund manager’s long term success and therefore do not charge any upfront fees to participate.
