IMPACT READY MATCHING FUND (IRMF)

How to 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 non-repayable funding that rewards enterprises for building their capacities in impact management and measurement (IMM). If you are an early-stage impact enterprise, you will be able to apply for this non-repayable fund that will match a seed investment in your company and reward you for building up your IMM systems. Entrepreneurs can receive up to USD 100,000 – more detailed information can be found here.

How you can apply


The application process is now closed for the 2022 round of IRMF. Stay tuned for future opportunities!

Impact enterprises were invited to submit an application for a matching payment of up to USD 100,000. As part of the application, they are asked to submit evidence that they will soon have matching investment, that they have paying customers, and that they have a business plan that envisages break-even in the medium term.
