Aartha North Star

About Us

Impact and profits in your context

Most organizations have independent processes for impact and business decision making.

 

Aartha bridges the gap between business and impact decision making processes.  We serve enterprises, startups, and investors in the for-profit, non-profit, social, and impact sectors.

The purpose of measuring impact is to manage impact proactively. We use impact measurement and management (IMM) toolkits and frameworks to teach, coach, or consult for your industry, function, organization, and impact objectives.

  • You improve decision-making, governance, risk management, and outcomes of programs and investments
  • You deliver measurable impact from programs and investments in alignment with stakeholder needs and expectations
  • You learn a future relevant skill as impact measurement becomes more incorporated in management decision-making
  • You develop in-house capabilities to operate impact measurement and management independently of external consultants

Anindita Sharma

Partner, Aartha

I focus on designing, implementing, and measuring client programs that need behavior change to deliver business results. There are surprisingly common features in these projects across industries and organizations! I teach, consult, and develop client and stakeholder relationships for Aartha.

On another note,

I like the outdoors and being in nature, hiking and walking. I chase creative pursuits like art, ikebana, food, and wine appreciation. I read voraciously and live to travel the world. Above all, I value developing genuine relationships with people. I volunteer when possible, and now I am volunteering with Columbia University’s Venture Capital Club’s Impact Program.

Karin Karlsson

Partner Marketing, Aartha

I support clients to uncover the impact of their programs and develop stakeholder relationships and Aartha’s brand. My area of expertise is marketing and branding. Living up to a continuously co-developed and holistic brand promise is critical for gaining and sustaining a competitive advantage.

On another note,

I am a soccer fan. Team sports give us so much in return as individuals and professionals. As a European and having spent eight years in Singapore and the USA each, I am also a fan of good food and cultures. While it is often easier to focus on the differences, we have surprisingly many common values across countries and cultures. Spending time in nature fuels my energy and creativity, and I love developing people and businesses, whether it is lifting someone’s strengths or giving marketing advice.
