Remember that time we promised that more changes were coming your way? Well, yet another of those changes has arrived! HINT is proud to announce that it has now entered into a partnership with the Frontier Market Scouts fellowship program!
The Frontier Market Scouts (FMS) fellowship offers professional training in social enterprise and impact investing to those seeking a career shift. Twice each year, FMS offers two week training programs in Monterey, CA, USA and in Amsterdam, NL with courses taught by leading professionals in the social impact space. Following successful completion of their training, fellows receive a certificate from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) at Monterey. Recognized as a leader in international studies, MIIS’s academic programs are world-renowned for their academic rigor and professional impact. After certification, fellows spend 2 – 12 months working with a FMS partner organization in the social impact space.
HINT will be one of FMS’s social impact partners, bringing fellows to Cameroon to work in the social impact space. FMS fellows will join HINT’s microfinance program, called Kingdom Community Fund (KCF), as fund managers. This opportunity will provide valuable professional experience for FMS fellows in managing a microfinance fund and working in developing markets with small-business entrepreneurs. Alternatively, FMS fellows will be able to provide business training to KCF’s entrepreneurs and consistent management of the Kingdom Community Fund.
We look forward to sharing more with you about our HINT – FMS partnership in the coming months! Feel free to click on the link to FMS above to explore the FMS program. Perhaps HINT will see one of you in Cameroon as an FMS fellow in the future!
We wish you continued success in your social enterprises and endeavors in 2015! Together, we can improve our local (and global) communities.
