GIIN Fund Manager Training Program

The GIIN offers specialized training to improve the capital-raising potential and deployment capacity of impact investment fund managers. Our programming includes a variety of training services ranging from open group training options available for public registration to more customized options for specific audiences, including private company trainings for GP teams and LP pipelines.

Since its inception in 2013, the GIIN Fund Manager Training program has trained hundreds of fund managers from over 29 countries. Our trainers are consistently rated best in class and our courses are all rated over 4 stars.  We have run trainings in 18 cities around the world in countries including the US, South Africa, India, Kenya, the Netherlands, France, Ghana, Nepal, and Myanmar. Specific projects include training for impact investment fund managers who invest in small and medium- enterprises (SMEs) in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia with funding support from DFID, as well as a partnership with a leading place-based investing platform for emerging fund managers in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

Designed and delivered by experienced practitioners and specialized experts, our sessions dig deep into applied skills training rather than focusing on theory. Our practical coursework builds on the latest market data, case studies, simulations, and feedback from leading LPs, GPs, and advisors. Participants collaborate with trainers and peers to tackle real-world problems, challenging them to hone their judgement and learn new ways of approaching problems. Sessions include intensive, long days requiring participants to leave the office behind, bond with their peers and engage actively with the learning process.

We’re Expanding!

To meet the vast demand for training in the impact investing industry, the GIIN is currently expanding its training activities. Specifically, we will be:

  • Expanding geographically through the support of sponsors interested in bringing GIIN training to new regions
  • Increasing the volume of customized in-depth training through working with LPs and Fund of Funds wanting to provide skills development opportunities to their pipeline of investees
  • Growing our product offerings through partnerships with other training providers looking to integrate impact investing themes into the content that they offer their constituencies.

If you are interested in supporting our expansion plans and how you can get involved, contact us.
