Introduction to the series:

ANDE in collaboration Asha Impact (co-chair of the ANDE India SGB Finance Learning Lab) is hosting a series of conversations around 'Demystifying Blended Finance'.

The conversations (in the form of a webinar series) will cover the workings of a range of blended finance instruments to support high impact social organizations. Organizations working to support small and growing businesses (SGBs) have expressed interest in blended finance tools, which leverage the strengths of both the public sector and private capital markets. However, there is varied knowledge of what really constitutes blended finance and limited understanding of the transactions in the market that can be scaled across sectors and geographies.

The webinar series aims to bridge this knowledge gap by engaging in comprehensive conversations with experts and practitioners who have driven blended finance transactions and can share their learning and experience around the suitability of these instruments to support SGBs/high-impact ventures.

The objective is to have the knowledge from these webinars and conversations feed into potential collaborative projects with organizations who would like to partner with ANDE and ANDE members to apply these learnings globally.

We are keen to explore answers to the following questions:

  1. How does the instrument work? Explain the financial flow and the overall functioning of the instrument. Who are the stakeholders involved? What is the value proposition for each of these stakeholders? (size, geography, types of investors/ donors, sectors)
  2. What social outcome is measured? Broadly outline the methodology to measure social impact.
  3. When should a SSN be used? What sectors are conducive for it? What kind of organizations can support this instrument? What are the pre-requisites, if any? Overview of any legal, regulatory specifications.
  4. What are the challenges and benefits associated with SSN?
  5. What can be done to scale SSN? Any key considerations for their use in specific sectors in India?
