DECALIA Capital is pleased to announce that on the 1st of July 2022 it successfully structured a minority stake investment into Edge Strategy, a leading global SaaS-based solution to measure, improve and certify gender and intersectional equity, in order to accelerate the international development and support the Founder, Aniela Unguresan, and her management team.
EDGE Certification was officially launched at the 2011 annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos and the assessment methodology is implemented as an online tool. EDGE Strategy today serves 200+ large organizations in 50 countries across 30 industries.
“This is a pivotal moment in the development of our company,” said Aniela Unguresan, the Founder of EDGE Strategy, “at a time where organizations and their different stakeholders have come to understand the critical importance of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in creating a fairer workplace and a fairer society. Finding an investment partner who shared our vision and our values was not a trivial pursuit, which perhaps shows how far the world still needs to travel on its journey towards true equity. The investment from DECALIA Capital will help us accelerate that journey and deliver Real. World. Change.”
“A growing number of organizations in the world trust EDGE Strategy to verify their progress towards DE&I and achieving success” added Jean-Guillaume Benoit, Partner at DECALIA Capital. “DECALIA Capital is proud to back Aniela and EDGE Strategy in their mission to fundamentally change the DE&I landscape.”
