What Our Summer Apprentices Say About Us?

“I felt everyone was very open and approachable whenever I had any questions. I had a great supervisor and working with them on the IIX Growth Fund was an amazing learning experience which gave me a lot of exposure to funds and how they work.”

Brian Costa, Princeton University

“The most significant learning for me in the apprenticeship was importance of measuring impact and how to use SROI as a guide to do so, also learning about the gaps in the social enterprise ecosystem that IIX aim to fill through impact credit. This apprenticeship was excellent, very well structured and designed to maximize the learning experience of apprentices.”

Maija Fiorante, Brown University

“Working with the impact assessment team has been a great learning curve for me and it has opened my eyes to the challenges that impact enterprises face and the hopes, faith and value the impact community and the teams of IIX have for the future. Working with Durreen has been inspirational and her life journey has taught me the most important lesson: If you believe in something, you have to fight for it.”

Bao Tran, Amherst College

“I had a very fruitful apprenticeship with IIX and the corporate finance team. The internal workshops like financial modelling and impact assessment broadened my knowledge base and honed my business analysis skills. I also gained valuable insights about impact investing space which culminates in tangible results. My supervisor and team members were very supportive and I highly recommend this apprenticeship to all students.”
