MBA Impact Investing and Network Training (MIINT)


MIINT is an experiential lab designed to give students at business and graduate schools a hands-on education in impact investing. It is an initiative of Bridges Impact Foundation, and is conducted in partnership with the Wharton Social Impact Initiative.

Over the past several years, the MIINT program has become a leading experiential education platform that trains the next generation of impact investors. The MIINT has brought together over 2,500 students at 31 top national and international business and policy schools into a growing network of students and practitioners focused on impact investing. Over the years, hundreds of mission-driven companies have been assessed and twelve companies presented by student teams have been selected for Impact Investment awards, investing over $500,000 in seed capital to date.
