Filling the Need:

Despite the growing momentum for impact investing, there are large gaps in the understanding of the possibilities and ways to participate in the impact ecosystem in order to close the US$2.5 trillion funding gap for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Today, women and underserved communities are still not being included and considered in solutions across the SDGs. We must shift deeply embedded dynamics from treating women as victims to valuing them as solution-builders, and we are empowering everyone to do so through education and training.

Our Ecosystem Approach:

We believe that everyone can become part of this ecosystem and play a role to advance sustainable development and women’s empowerment. Building inclusive markets requires a holistic, ecosystem approach by:

  • Unlocking capital through financial innovations and blended finance;
  • Empowering high-impact enterprises across their different stages of growth with capital raise, capacity building, accelerator programs, and pipelines to partnerships or growth;
  • Accelerating the growth of the impact investing ecosystem with training and education programs, advisory and research

Our portfolio of educational programs include online short courses, our flagship 7 weeks Executive Certificate Program, customized in-person workshops and training as well as knowledge-sharing events such as our Impact Chats, Webinars and Trailblazer Showcases.
