Are you new in the sector of venture philanthropy and impact investing? Then this is the right course for you to deepen your knowledge and grow your network!
“The Fundamental Training on Venture Philanthropy and Impact Investing” is specifically designed to offer participants who are new to the sector with the fundamental tool-kit to practice venture philanthropy (VP) and impact investing (II).
As a participant, you will:
- acquire the knowledge to develop an impact-centric funding strategy.
- understand the entire investment process, including techniques used for due diligence, closing and structuring of deals, governance aspects of a VP/II organisation, how to manage an impactful exit and portfolio management.
Case studies and a focus on day-to-day practice will be at the heart of the training: you will be provided with ready-to-use strategies, tools & materials to work on during the workshops. Experienced VP/II practitioners from all over Europe will share their insights and will work with you on the key practices of VP/II, including how to set up a VP/II organisation, how to define a theory of change from the perspective of the investor and how to deploy the most impactful financial strategy.
The structure of the course
The course is co-designed jointly by EVPA and ESADE Business School and it combines a preparatory session (starting 15 days prior to the training) using the online learning platform with two days of face-to-face interaction with leading professors and practitioners in Barcelona. After the training you will have the chance to work on your own action plan to develop or revise your impact strategy and you will receive a feedback at the end of the programme.
Who should attend?
The training is designed for practitioners with no or little experience on the VP/II field. It targets professionals from venture philanthropy organisations (impact investing funds and foundations), financial institutions, incubators, accelerators, and corporations with an interest in developing an impact-centric funding approach.
In order to guarantee the interactivity and learning potential of the workshop, spaces are limited. Each application will be screened by EVPA and ESADE which reserve the ultimate decision on admittance. Particular attention will be paid to the personal and the organization’s commitment to Venture Philanthropy/Impact Investing.

Welcome to the 2019 edition of the International Reporting 3.0 Conference website. This 6th edition marks a watershed moment. Whereas earlier conferences reached from initial soul searching to developing and releasing the content of the Reporting 3.0 work ecosystem and its Blueprints, this 6th Reporting 3.0 International Conference switches gears to implementation mode, hence the conference title ‘Implementing Thriveable Transformation’. This means that most of the content that will be showcased comes from you, the participants. We will hear from those that joined our Transformation Journey Programs (The Journey workstream), from Advocation and Academic Alliance Partners (The Sherpas workstream), and from those that come to the conference to find a forum willing to discuss your most pressing issue or hearing about your solutions (The Campfires). In addition we are inviting international leaders and visionaries into plenary keynotes and panels (The Village). By this we aim at inspiring you and interacting with you as much as possible. ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’ at our new conference site, the wonderful Erasmus Pavilion in Rotterdam and grasp the spirit of this upcoming mekka for sustainable transformation. We look forward to seeing you on June 17/18, 2019.
As a “for-impact”-Initiative, Reporting 3.0 was established in 2013 by leading sustainability consultancy BSD Consulting. Reporting 3.0 serves as a global platform to scout out and accelerate reporting innovations that help to bring the global economy onto a sustainable path and to make a green, inclusive and open economy reality. It is an answer to the need for consolidation and convergence in a fragmented reporting market. It serves as a neutral, pre-competitive and market-making platform and instigator of multi-stakeholder collaboration toward a “North Star” for new breakthroughs in disclosure and reporting. Since its inception, it focused on a thorough evaluation of the status quo of corporate reporting, with the objective of connecting ideas, concepts, tools and practitioners to shape the future of reporting. It held four major global conferences to explore and shape the field and various Transition Labs and Regional Roundtables. In 2015, Reporting 3.0 has launched its Series of four Blueprint projects. Furthermore, Reporting 3.0 became the lighthouse initiative of Oncommons, a not-for-profit gGmbH, registered in Berlin, Germany, founded early 2017. This allows Reporting 3.0 to benefit from a broader array of funding opportunities. Oncommons is also registered as 501(c3) organization in the US, and has plans to broaden its reach into other areas necessary to make a Green, Inclusive and Open Economy a reality.

With the rich getting richer while the poor get poorer, it is clear that the current model of economic growth isn’t working for all. A new Oxfam report shows that growing wealth disparity is undermining the fight against poverty and damaging global economies.
This conference will challenge participants to consider alternative economic models, which address the mounting social and environmental challenges facing today’s society.
