In September, you'll be preparing to work on your first impact consulting project.
September - April: Learn the fund as an Associate
For the next 8 months, you'll participate actively in your local fund: meeting social enterprises, researching, working on investments, and building community connections. In this time, you'll have the mentorship and guidance of Fund Managers: people who were Associates last year. Peer learning is key here.
Run your fund as a Fund Manager
Now is your time to run your local fund (alongside your teammates obviously). You'll be taking the lead on deals, partnerships, and internal operations. You'll also get to pass on knowledge to new associates.
