Impact Investment Exchange (IIX) relaunches IIX Impact Institute – a premier, go-to training center for sustainability

April 14, 2021 – SINGAPORE – IIX has announced the relaunch of IIX Institute, a unique and innovative learning and training program that offers a full suite of online, interactive learning courses that will equip investors, professionals, and enterprises with the knowledge they need to be leaders in sustainable finance and impact investing. For the last 12 years, the IIX Institute has been the premier, go-to training center to equip professionals and practitioners with the knowledge and skills needed to play a catalytic role in the sustainability space. 

This space is growing exponentially with the sustainable investing market reaching $30 trillion, yet the number of trained and qualified professionals who are ready to support this growth is lacking. Between all the acronyms, jargon, and varied approaches floating around, it’s no wonder that businesses, funders, and governments are scratching their heads when it comes to sustainability. 

To help close this gap, IIX Institute launched three online masterclasses last year, bringing together more than 200 students from over 50 countries and featuring seven guest lecturers from the Wharton Business School, Stanford University, Social Value International, DSB Bank, Nuveen, and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

IIX 12 Year Anniversary: Building Relief, Recovery, and Resilience

#BUILDINGBACKBETTER THROUGH RECOVERY

As we celebrate IIX’s 12th anniversary, we would like to share how we are building a new era of growth through three pillars: Relief, Recovery, and Resilience.

Businesses must not just survive the pandemic, but recover and have a lifeline to pivot their businesses so they’re able to adapt and thrive in the new norm. In addition to providing catalytic capital, capacity building and tools to adapt are necessary to ensure the capital is put to good use and help SMEs navigate through the challenging environment. To overcome the disadvantages faced by SMEs, it is pertinent for stakeholders to provide handholding support and lend women entrepreneurs a platform to relaunch and access national and international markets. Leveraging insights garnered from working with women entrepreneurs, IIX developed tailored toolkits and platforms across the growth stages of an enterprise that help them rebuild, pivot, and strengthen their business operations for a new business and economic environment.

IIX 12 Year Anniversary: Building Relief, Recovery, and Resilience

 

#BUILDINGBACKBETTER THROUGH RESILIENCE

As we celebrate IIX’s 12th anniversary, we would like to share how we are building a new era of growth through three pillars: Relief, Recovery, and Resilience.

Catalytic capital allows women entrepreneurs to survive natural shocks such as the on-going pandemic. However, it is important to have a resilient enterprise contributing to the economy’s growth and maximizing its impact on underserved communities, which an emergency capital infusion by itself cannot solve. The final stage of achieving gender equality is creating resilient enterprises by providing capital at timely intervals such that they can scale rapidly.
