Get rewards for building up your impact management systems

How does the Impact Ready Matching Fund (IRMF) work?

Entrepreneurs receive financial rewards for improving their impact management

The IRMF is a non-repayable funding that rewards enterprises for building their capacities in Impact Management & Measurement (IMM). It’s a hybrid instrument with elements of Impact-Linked Finance and capacity building. If you are an early-stage impact enterprise, you will be able to apply for this non-repayable funding that matches a seed investment in your company and rewards you for building up your IMM systems. Entrepreneurs can receive up to USD 100,000 – more detailed information can be found here.
