    [Webinar] Beyond the Idea: Uncovering the Entrepreneur’s Talent in Due Diligence

    Entrepreneurs think that the most important element for attracting investments is the idea – it’s not. For early-stage investments, the emphasis is on the strength of the entrepreneurs. Are they smart, tenacious, bright, and able to recognize opportunities and pivot when necessary?

    Entrepreneurs, capacity providers, and investors are invited to join NESsT to learn about the ways our online Talent Tool can be used in the due diligence process to better understand an entrepreneur and their ability to successfully run an enteprise.

    In 2017, NESsT publicly launched the Idea2Entrepreneur Talent Tool, a tool that we developed from our experience training over 13,000 entrepreneurs. We’ve used it in six of our open windows in five countries to select the social enterprises that enter our portfolio.

    Measuring Effectiveness: Roadmap to Assessing System-level and SDG Investing

    This webinar will provide an overview of a new report that provides investors with a breakthrough roadmap for measuring the effectiveness of system-level investing strategies, including measuring progress toward achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
    The new report, Measuring Effectiveness: Roadmap to Assessing System-level and SDG Investing, examines how investors can chart a course to assess system-level issues (like those contained in the SDGs) appropriate for their specific situation, and then establish effective goals for influence against which to measure progress. In doing so, investors also can assess the potential usefulness of the tools available to them and the effectiveness of the tools they have selected. Ultimately, allows investors to assess their influence in determining changes at the system-level itself and the potential contribution of their efforts and investments.
    The report is authored by William Burckart, Steve Lydenberg and Jessica Ziegler of The Investment Integration Project (TIIP) and was sponsored by the Investor Responsibility Research Center Institute (IRRC Institute).

    BFA Webinar: Get to Product/Market Fit

    One of the biggest questions early-stage companies have to answer is whether their product is right for their targeted market. That is to say, Product-Market Fit can be thought of as the measure of how well your product satisfies the market. The Product/ Market toolkit covers the journey where companies start with a pain-point, a passion or a hunch, and go all the up to the final stage of optimization where they scale up. This final stage of scaling up includes a perfect combination of visibility, desirability, and feasibility of the product, in the market they are serving.

    This special webinar series hosted by BFA, as the manager of Catalyst Fund, covering each of these toolkits is geared to entrepreneurs, accelerators, and investors looking to support their portfolio companies. You can learn more about the webinar series here.

    Changing Behavior Webinar #3: Creating Lasting Behavior Change Through Customer Loyalty

    Convincing BoP clients to try a new and beneficial product such as a clean cookstove, and even to invest in buying it, does not ensure that they will keep using it and reap the corresponding benefits over the long term. In this webinar, Hystra and BURN Manufacturing will explore mechanisms that help ensure customers’ loyalty and motivate regular product use, inspired by global best practices in the cookstove industry and beyond. This webinar is part of a three-part series “Changing Behavior: Frameworks and Approaches to Strengthen BoP Markets” hosted by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance), Practical Action, Hystra, and BoP Innovation Center. Consisting of three distinct sessions, presenters will discuss insights, learnings, and successful case studies of changing behavior around the purchase and adoption of household products among BoP consumers. This series is an initiative of the Global Distributors Collective (GDC), a consortium of organizations led by Practical Action that is working to strengthen and scale the capacity of last mile distributors to reach the world’s poor with life-saving and life-changing products.
