Natasha is a next gen impact investor, philanthropist and mental health activist. She is a convener to the core and is passionate about leveraging her deep network to build and support a global ecosystem of local change-makers that, together, create sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.
NM Impact Ltd. was founded with the aim to inspire, motivate and connect like-minded Next Gens and to catalyze increased capital flows, whether philanthropically or through impactful investments, to social enterprises and sustainable businesses. Natasha’s sector involvement and proactive participation in investments focus on themes including food systems, clean tech, gender equality, affordable housing, as well as water, waste, and environmental sanitation. Ultimately, she looks at how she can use her energy and resources to catalyze a compassionate systems-change transformation that puts community and human connection at the heart of it.
Natasha also actively campaigns on mental health issues, has worked on several policy initiatives, and helps fundraise and create philanthropic solutions. She is a trustee for United for Global Mental Health and Philanthropy Impact, occupies seats on various advisory committees and boards including, the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth (CSP) at the University of Zurich, the Empower initiative at Harvard Medical School, and is a founding member of The Conduit social impact membership club.
Natasha holds a BA in Geography; an MSC in the Political Economy of Violence, Conflict, and Development from SOAS University, and is an Alumni of the Impact Investing for the Next Generation course at Harvard Kennedy School. Outside of her work, she was a competitive equestrian show jumper and is currently an avid weightlifter, sports enthusiast, and a contemporary art collector.
Natasha’s hard work and drive for impact is informed by who she is and her experiences growing up. Her father lived with Bipolar Disorder and Depression and died by suicide when Natasha was just 17. The experience of deep trauma and the necessity of having to take on family responsibility as a young woman, has shown Natasha the importance of a loving and supportive network - something she knows not everyone is fortunate enough to have.
It is her first-hand experiences that bring compassion and empathy to all areas of Natasha’s work and that have made her into the mover and shaker that she is. They have alerted her to the need of addressing the injustices that go unnoticed, and of investing in a more sustainable lifestyle that puts what she refers to as ‘The 3 C’s’ - compassion, community and connection - at the centre.
Accordingly, mental health is Natasha’s passion and her priority. She supports both mental health initiatives advocating for mental health policy reform worldwide and social impact initiatives using the power of business and finance as a force for good. She strongly believes in the importance of social capital and in its vital role as the glue that bonds societies together - we all have a responsibility to each other and to our environment, and by connecting on shared values we can build up resilience in our communities that leads to long-term systems change.
