Social Finance Academy

Where impact entrepreneurs learn the language of investors

The Social Finance Academy provides practice-driven knowledge and tools that empower impact entrepreneurs to access finance and professionalize impact management. It effectively combines open and free online education with personal on-site training and acceleration programs run by our partners.

The Academy’s mission is to educate impact entrepreneurs to successfully attract and deploy capital for scaling positive impact. It also provides valuable insights on how to measure, assess and manage impact. Practical knowledge addresses relevant topics such as investment readiness, innovative financing or lean impact management. This enables entrepreneurs to reach common ground with investors and to learn to speak the same ‚language‘.

The Social Finance Academy works in partnerships with incubators, accelerators and other service providers for impact enterprises globally to complement their programs with ready-to-use content and tools. Our team is running train-the-trainer and other capacity-building programs for our partners.

We have helped to put together the “Access to Impact Investing” course available on VC4A. Find the course here and start learning for free.
