Toniic members are dedicated, action-oriented individuals and institutions with the energy and commitment to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges.
I’m a member of Toniic because great business solutions that yield tremendous social change can’t get off the ground without a community of investors committed to funding them. We can be vastly more impactful when we intelligently put our minds, money and hearts together.
Eva Helene Yazhari co-founded Beyond Capital Fund as a way to combine her professional skills and dedication to a socially conscious lifestyle. Throughout her career, Eva has been involved in investment management and business development in both non-profit and corporate settings.
Most recently, Eva spent five years at EnTrust Capital Inc., an asset management firm, as a Vice President focusing on investment due diligence. Eva and her team leverage their professional backgrounds to invest “beyond capital”- ensuring that they are supporting legitimate and viable social businesses and attracting top-tier pro bono resources for social entrepreneurs.
Eva is currently based in Los Angeles, yet is also active in the impact investing community in Switzerland.
I’m a Toniic member because I believe in the value of a strong and professional network that connects open-minded entrepreneurs and investors. Innovative ideas and solutions come from inspired people that work together with joy, passion and common sense.
Mike naturally combines successful entrepreneurship and social and environmental engagement. He is concerned for the planet and it’s inhabitants, and believes that commercial business can create durable solutions to complex world problems.
With that in mind he founded A-SPark, a company with an impassioned team that identifies, selects and invests in (means for) projects and ideas that are commercially interesting and preferably good for the planet, its inhabitants and future generations.
I am a member of Toniic because I believe that creating a positive impact through investing needs to be a community effort.
