GIIN Training Program

The GIIN offers specialized training to improve the capital-raising potential and deployment capacity of impact investors around the world. Through a mix of group trainings available for public registration and customized, private trainings for investment teams, the GIIN has trained hundreds of investors from over 30 countries since 2013. We have hosted trainings in the U.S., South Africa, India, Kenya, the Netherlands, France, Ghana, Nepal, and more.

Designed and delivered by experienced practitioners and specialized experts, training sessions dig deep into applied skills training rather than focusing on theory. 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. Course trainers are consistently rated best in class and all our trainings (detailed below) are highly rated by past attendees.
