The training will address the following issues:
- What is innovative finance? Demystify IF4D by gaining a better understanding of finance mechanisms.
- Discover the extent to which your peers and competitors are applying IF4D to support their strategy. Learn from the challenges other INGOs have faced and how they have responded.
- Determine *if* and how IF4D may be a tool to achieve your objectives.
- Assess your organizational readiness: Is your staff & leadership ready? Is your funding lined up? Understand the cost and opportunities associated with utilizing new tools.
The training will be facilitated by Bulbul Gupta, who has over 15 years of experience in philanthropy, innovative finance, USAID, and international development, as an implementer, funder, investor, and advisor to family offices.
