This curriculum provides a flexible, self-paced introduction to the essential impact management concepts, tools, and practices in impact-financial integration. This resource is relevant for anyone interested in exploring frontier practices in impact management, including investment practitioners, entrepreneurs, students, and policymakers.
The guidance offered here builds and expands on the foundation laid by the first Impact Frontiers cohort in 2018 – 2020, described in Impact-Financial Integration: A Handbook for Investors. It synthesizes the insights and learnings that emerged from Impact Frontiers’ work with a cohort of private markets investors affiliated with Impact Capital Managers, and more broadly with more than fifty investors across six cohorts in 2021 – 2022.
The curriculum assumes minimal prior experience with impact management, though it is recommended that users review the Five Dimensions of Impact framework in advance.
