Organizer Middlebury Institute of International Studies and the Frontier Market Scouts Program

Organizer of Join Frontier Market Scouts for a Social Event After SOCAP Sept 4

The award-winning Frontier Market Scouts (FMS) program provides intensive two-week certificate trainings that prepare participants for careers in the fields of social enterprise and impact investing. Through the combination of lectures and actionable projects, participants gain a comprehensive understanding of the key players in the impact sector, how to design an innovative impact-focused business model, and what it takes to implement and scale a social venture.

After the training, participants have the opportunity to become candidates for a competitive two- to 12-month fellowship in key global areas for social enterprise. The fellowship option is an essential part of a self-sustaining ecosystem for social enterprise development and investment, designed to enable entrepreneurs whose ventures are either too large to receive microfinance funds or too small to attract traditional venture funding. Successful completion of the training is required to become a fellowship candidate. However, there is no additional cost to enroll in the competitive fellowship program.

Since 2011, FMS fellows have worked to grow and improve processes for more than 200 social enterprises around the world during field assignments based in countries such as Brazil, India, The Netherlands, Ecuador, Vietnam, Tanzania, South Africa, and Lebanon.
