FGV students who won India Impact Challenge talk about their experience in webinar

On April 28, at 7:30 pm, Fundação Getulio Vargas will hold a panel discussion about the India Impact Challenge international prize won by FGV students and everything that led up to it. The contest was held in India and it involved undergraduate, MBA and graduate students from many schools across the world. The goal was to produce an impact investment strategy that could help mitigate the effects of climate change in India. The criteria were scalability, time, innovation, risk versus return and impact on the climate.

Of the five winning students, four are taking the Public Administration course at FGV EAESP and one is studying Economics at FGV EESP. They are all taking FGV’s Integrated Training in Sustainability module. Their project, called BIO3F, involved setting up a blended finance facility, combining aspects of project finance and venture capital, to enable investment in small biomass projects in India. BIO3F also featured a theory of change, involving indicators for each stage of the project, to ensure that the desirable impacts were feasible and measurable. During the final round, the students beat an American MBA team and won the prize of US$7,000.

The webinar’s participants will include the five students on the winning team: Alice Grinbaum (third year, Public Administration, FGV EAESP), Carolina Zweig (fourth year, Economics, FGV EESP), Gabriela Pinheiro (second year, Public Administration and double degree in Economics, FGV EAESP and FGV EESP), Sophia Hess (third year, Public Administration, FGV EAESP) and Victoria Rieser (fourth year, Public Administration, FGV EAESP). The moderators will be Professor Cibele Franzese of FGV EAESP’s Public Administration Undergraduate Course Coordination Office, Fernanda Carreira of FGVCes and Joelson Sampaio of CGE-EESP.
