In partnership with Roots of Impact and the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth (CSP) at the University of Zurich this is an actionable, practice-driven executive program.
The program aims at empowering public, philanthropic and private sector funders to collaborate effectively to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A special ingredient are solutions that demonstrate how to enable high-impact enterprises with market-based solutions to scale and deliver positive impact in a sustainable way – a bottom-up approach. Our more than 160 IIBF alumni to date come from major organisations across the globe, e.g. UNDP, USAID, SDC/DEZA, GIZ, Global Affairs Canada, IFC, SECO, FAO as well as renowned foundations or NGOs such as UNICEF, Shell Foundation, Aqua for All, SOS Children’s Villages, and Refugee Investment Network.
IIBF runs as an open program (based upon application) at its home base at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. It builds on the extensive academic and practical expertise of Roots of Impact, Convergence and the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth (CSP).
