How to improve your fitness for investment readiness and impact management

What is included in our training and voucher offer?

A powerful fitness opportunity for incubators and impact enterprises

Both, the Impact Investment Readiness and the Impact Measurement & Management Train-The-Trainer components, target service providers such as incubators and accelerators. Selected participants will participate in training sessions that cover the latest knowledge and tools in these important disciplines. Upon completion of the Train-The-Trainer components, these service providers can then become eligible for the Voucher Scheme. This means that impact enterprises can select these and jointly apply for a voucher that will subsidise the cost of the services delivered.

How does the application generally work?

For impact entrepreneurs: Voucher Scheme

B-Briddhi enters into its PHASE II: Stay tuned for Voucher Scheme applications in 2024!

For impact entrepreneurs, the Voucher Scheme is a great opportunity to access tailored support on Impact Investment Readiness and/or Impact Measurement & Management. You are able to select a service provider that has successfully taken part in the Train-the-Trainer components and jointly develop a programme that will serve as the basis of your application. Detailed information on the typical Voucher Scheme of B-Briddhi Phase I can be found in the following document.

Eligible impact enterprises are invited to submit a joint application with one of the pre-approved incubators (as an example, find our certified service providers from PHASE I below). The application itself will ask impact enterprises and their partner incubator to submit a capacity development plan with specific deliverables. These deliverables will become part of the service contract.
