Apis Partners named Impact Manager of the Year for Asia and Africa by International Business Magazine

London, 26th September 2023 – Apis Partners is delighted to announce that it has been named “Impact Manager of the Year: Asia” and “Impact Manager of the Year: Africa” at the International Business Magazine Awards 2023.

Impact has been at the heart of its activities since the firm’s formation almost a decade ago. The social impact that Apis’ portfolio companies create within the communities they serve is significant, and we are honoured this has been recognised by these awards. We are particularly pleased that the judging process acknowledged the Apis Impact Management System (“AIMS”). AIMS incorporates Apis’ proprietary impact measurement framework which allows the firm to optimise impact creation activities, actively manage risks to impact, and ultimately increase overall impact.

Apis Partners Co-founders and Managing Partners Matteo Stefanel and Udayan Goyal commented: “We are delighted that Apis has been recognised at the International Business Magazine Awards in two categories. As a growing firm, we continually strive to ensure that our founding principles of investing to create positive social impact and achieve greater financial inclusion remain a core tenet of everything we do. We are very proud of our record as well as our team, whose hard work and dedication is key to the firm’s success.”

The International Business Magazine Awards honour extraordinary accomplishments in multiple industries, including finance, banking, insurance and healthcare. The judging panel comprised the magazine’s editorial team in addition to industry analysts, who deliberated over four rounds of selections.
