We are excited to announce that we will be hosting ANDE’s Investment Manager Training (IMT) in East Africa. The ANDE Investment Manager Training course 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. The course covers the entire investment process – from deal sourcing and due diligence to term sheets, ongoing business support, and exit strategies.
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 while incorporating learnings on gender lens and climate-related investing. It will also focus on both investing in emerging and developing markets and impact investing with reference to global/regional case studies with a field visit to an entrepreneur site in Nairobi, Kenya. The IMT course is intensive and is highly participatory. As such, the IMT will only be offered in-person in Nairobi, Kenya.
Who you are?
The training is primarily targeted to those who have or have had experience in being responsible for investment and portfolio management, those who work closely with investment managers and/or with entrepreneurs seeking investment. While it is not mandatory, trainees should have mid-level to senior management experience and an advanced understanding of financial and accounting concepts concerning improvement for SGB’s specifically using ANDE members as case studies.
