Hello, I'm Karim.
My work explores how to generate and sustain measurable social impacts for people, places, and systems.

Karim Harji works with investors and ventures to describe, measure, and improve their social impact. He is the Programme Director of the Oxford Impact Measurement Programme at the Said Business School, University of Oxford; General Partner at Possibilian Ventures, an emerging fund manager focused on systemic transformation for better futures; and Managing Director at Evalysis, an impact measurement and management consultancy.

Karim was previously a co-founder and Director at Purpose Capital (now, Rally Assets), where he established and led its Impact Investment Advisory practice. He was the Co-Chair of the Impact Measurement Task Force convened by the Government of Ontario, Member of the Impact Measurement Working Group of the G8 Social Impact Investment Task Force, and an Advisor to the Rockefeller Foundation on social impact measurement.

Impact Measurement

Measurement is about more than collecting data. I help create and implement tools and approaches and systems to describe, assess, value, and report on social impact.

Impact investing is about more than just money. I help design strategies and portfolios that balance impact, risk and return; and contribute new evidence and learning.

Unemployment remains a global concern. I help to design, implement and evaluate programs that seek to create, support and sustain good quality jobs and career pathways.
