LEARN BY DOINGWe work to help investors fit together the puzzle pieces of impact management and investment decision-making

Impact Frontiers supports investors in putting open-access content into practice.

Our facilitated peer cohorts create a safe and confidential forum for investors to test and refine new approaches, share experiences, and learn from peers. Our online curriculum introduces individual learners to the essential impact management concepts, tools, and practices of impact-financial integration.

We offer the following programs:
For Organizations

The Strengthening Impact Management Cohort (SIM) program is co-facilitated by Impact Frontiers and The Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) at Duke University, and is designed to support professional investing organizations interested in significantly advancing or transforming how they integrate impact into their investing.

This 12-month program covers critical concepts, tools and processes of impact management, impact-financial integration, and leading organizational change in service of impact. This program explores each of the topics covered in the online curriculum at greater depth, as well as additional topics not covered in the online curriculum.


The online curriculum provides a flexible, self-paced introduction to impact management concepts, tools, and practices in impact-financial integration. This resource assumes minimal prior experience with impact management, is relevant for anyone interested in exploring frontier practices in impact investing.

This open-access curriculum consists of 5 hours of instructional videos with complementary worksheets and templates, and is designed to help practitioners independently get started with impact-financial integration.
