Get rewards for building up your impact management systems



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

Enterprises receive financial rewards for improving their impact measurement & management (IMM)

IRMF is non-repayable funding that rewards enterprises for elevating their IMM capacities. It’s a hybrid financial 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 recent seed investment and financially rewards you for building up your IMM systems. Impact enterprises are eligible to receive up to USD 100,000 – more detailed information can be found here.
