More on Funder Boot Camp

Funder Boot Camps are single-day events designed to give those with little or experience in investing in international social or environmental companies (i.e. the type of companies Unreasonable Institute supports) a chance to learn what it takes and what goes into making direct investment into such businesses.
Funder Boot Camps are designed for accredited investors that are starting to think about impact investing. However, this is also a great opportunity for other community members such as grad/MBA students, lawyers, financial advisors, etc. to learn about the in’s and out’s of impact investing. If you are not sure whether you are a good fit or not please contact us.
The curriculum is designed to be a welcoming and non-scary environment where there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

Curriculum includes:

  • Setting your investment thesis/strategy: What do you consider when choosing what to invest in? Return? Impact? Both?
  • Sourcing deals: Finding organizations that you want to invest in
  • Due diligence: Asking the right questions and getting the right documentation so you can evaluate whether it’s a promising investment
  • Structuring deals: Equity, convertible debt, debt
  • How to invest well with others: Reduce your workload and risk by investing as part of a group
  • Supporting your investment: Helping with more than just money
Funder Bootcamps usually happens the day before of Investor Days so if you’d like to put your newly found skills into practice straight away, you can also sign up for Unreasonable Investor Days. In fact, that is what we hope Bootcamp attendees do!
Given our rapid expansion we are hosting a few Bootcamps each year. Contact Sara, our Venture Funding Lead to find out when the next Funder Bootcamp is.
We love to meet and teach new funders interested in learning how to do impact investing by running Funder Bootcamps for other organizations. If you would like to explore this please contact Sara, our Venture Funding Lead.
