Spring’s Emerging Impact Investor program is designed to train young professionals to learn early-stage impact investing.

Over the course of 8 sessions facilitated by experts in fundraising, you’ll join a group of other aspiring early-stage impact investors to walk through the process of:

  • Creating your impact investing thesis
  • Measuring impact
  • Learning how to find and screen opportunities
  • Assessing a team
  • Understanding the 101 of the due diligence process, negotiations & closing as well as exits and returns.

Throughout the training, your group will also have the opportunity to hear from industry experts and partners, gain insights into the impact investment world, build your network, and access curated resources to help you become successful at impact investing.

At the end of the program, you'll make an investment into a social venture of your choosing.
