Founders and entrepreneurs have the unique opportunity to develop creative solutions to global challenges as they become investors. Even if their goals and values are clear, the questions remain:
- How to allocate financial and non-financial resources to make a meaningful impact?
- How to manage wealth and who to trust for advice to achieve this impact?
- How to scale impact by building an ecosystem geared towards change?
ACCELERATE: The Impact Investing Program for Entrepreneurs is the first of its kind to support self-made wealth owners in finding answers to the pressing questions related to the whys, hows, whats, and whos of impact investing.
The program by Katapult Foundation, BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, and CSP, is globally unique in design and purpose and rooted in science and practice, providing founders and entrepreneurs with the knowledge, tools, peer networks, and expert support they need to deploy capital for impact. The training is organized by leaders in impact investing, philanthropy, and ecosystem building and managed within a university setting, ensuring a trusted environment free from conflicts of interest.
Training participants are...
- Ultra high-net-worth founders and entrepreneurs
- Facing a recent or upcoming liquidity event
- Highly dedicated to impacting global challenges
- Eager to engage in co-creative process and pave the way for future participants
