Corporate Social Responsibility
“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.”
Since its inception, TresVista has been committed to serving the community to which it belongs. The founders of TresVista firmly believe that the proper functioning and improvement of a society requires its people, both as individuals and as corporate citizens, to not only take responsibility, but also action. More than just monetary donations, TresVista attempts to instill a sense of civic responsibility in each of its employees through firm-organized social service activities. The small changes that we make and witness, allow TresVista to become more engaged and committed towards donating time and money for socially valuable causes. Individuals in the firm are encouraged to promote any cause or organization they are passionate about. The founders often participate in service events with such individual champions. We, as a team, are devoted to continue contributing to the community by putting in our best efforts.
Beyond Capital Fund
TresVista works with Beyond Capital Fund (BCF), an impact investment charity that fosters sustainability and long-term social change through seed capital investments. Their focus is on the water, waste and sanitation, healthcare and energy business sectors in India and East Africa. By addressing the lack of seed capital for social business, they specialize in providing early-stage, seed-round financial capital along with management assistance, mentoring and expert advisory services.
With a fully built and tested investment process, BCF’s aim is to foster sustainability and long-term social change for businesses that operate for the advancement of the base of the economic pyramid population. In working with TresVista, BCF has been able to add an extra layer of professionalism to its due diligence processes in order to ensure that the fund’s capital is invested in the most legitimate and viable companies with strong promises of social impact.
“TresVista’s pro – bono work with BCF has been a valuable addition to the BCF investment process. The TresVista team is informed and responsive regarding the financial analysis and due diligence work they complete on the early-stage social enterprises in the BCF portfolio. Furthermore, TresVista allows for BCF to leverage our own investment team and scale our knowledge and impact as a result. Because of TresVista’s local Indian presence, the team is also able to overlay local knowledge of the companies being assessed. BCF is extremely proud of the relationship with TresVista – the team’s skills are a perfect match to the BCF investment process.”

Teach For India
As part of our attempt to give back to the society, we have been associated with Teach for India since the last few years. Teach for India is a nationwide movement of leaders working together to eliminate the educational inequity in the country.
For our annual CSR initiative, we have been visiting schools which cater to students from underprivileged background. Many of these students are the firsts in their families to attend school.
TresVista organizes art workshops, which seems like an ideal way to dispel the image of the corporate while still maintaining the focus on education. The day is planned for the students with multiple activities including drawing, coloring, and clay modeling. We also share some of our work experiences with the older students and the importance of education in life.
We also try to add some more to their happiness with special gifts such as white boards, books, educational charts such as vocabulary, math, maps, sport equipments, board games such as chess and other useful stationary.
“TresVista’s involvement in the life of our kids in Teach for India classrooms has been much appreciated by both the students and us fellows. All the teams involved in the activities participate extremely enthusiastically and take good care of the kids through various activities like art and extempore. We much appreciate the time and various other resources provided by TresVista to give these kids from underprivileged backgrounds the hope for a better future.”
