Access to Impact Investment for Social Enterprises: Free Online Course
VIVA Idea and the Social Finance Academy teamed up to develop an entire, free and actionable online course “Access to Impact Investment for Social Enterprises”.
A course that empowers social entrepreneurs worldwide to speak “social finance” and prepares for a successful access to impact investors.
Do you speak social finance?
Based on practical experiences and proven concepts from the field, the course is wrapped around a signature framework that explains - step by step – how the process from getting investment-ready via signing a financing contract to establishing good investor relations, avoiding mission drift and approaching the next financing (or responsible exit) will typically unfold in real life.
The course structure
The entire online course spans 8 weeks and follows a specific framework, covering the main challenges along the entire “lifecycle” of a social enterprise from a financing perspective – from defining the theory of change via securing investment until managing post-investment activities. A major focus of the course lies on raising social entrepreneurs’ confidence and ability to successfully attract investors.
