as a differentiator and thought leader within the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The Group partnered with The PRactice to establish itself as a thought leader in the social impact investment sector. Faced with the challenge of communicating the Group’s significant contribution towards the developing entrepreneurial ecosystem, The PRactice deployed Strategic Media Relations programmes to build awareness and visibility around its entrepreneurial ventures and investments towards achieving India’s Sustainable Development Goals. We successfully achieved not only an increase in the Group’s share of voice but also positioned them as a differentiator and thought leader within the ecosystem. The Founder was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine as one of the leading impact investors in the country, while Mint positioned the group as a key impact investment fund in 2018.
