About the IMT
The ANDE Investment Manager Training is the only course of its kind which provides a comprehensive overview of investing in small and growing businesses. The course is designed both for investment managers who are actively making investments in SGBs and capacity development providers who are working to support entrepreneurs through the investment process.
This five day course is based largely on actual deals made by ANDE members and is designed to be highly interactive and participatory. It will focus on the social and environmental impact of investing at this level, and how that affects the investment process. It will also focus on both investing in emerging and developing markets and impact investing by incorporating global/regional case studies.
If you are interested in gaining cutting-edge knowledge on investing in early stage deals in emerging markets from some of the leaders in the field, then this is the course for you!
