What learners say about our course

“Social Finance Academy has allowed us to detect areas we need to improve as a company to be able to get impact investment. We’ve found the platform resourceful, with valuable content and are enjoying very much being a part of it. We believe this type of content should be available to more social entrepreneurs, especially when they start to think about scaling up their ideas and expanding their impact potential.”
“I’m very happy that I found this course. Social investing is quite a newcomer in Finland. Recently we have had the very first Social Impact Bonds to be launched in our country. I really believe these kinds of instruments will be relevant in our future.”
“I would like to thank VIVA and the Social Finance Academy for an informative and encouraging course. I especially liked the additional reading selections, the expert interviews/input and tempo – all kept ideas and progress focused on the end goal.”
