The mission of the Kirchner Fellowship is to strengthen impact investing ecosystems in areas underserved by capital markets through training and empowering a diverse next generation of investors to allocate equity investments into early-stage companies.
The Kirchner Fellowship is an opportunity for students to have discretion over investment decisions, with a focus on companies applying ground-breaking technologies that can provide sustainable solutions.
The Kirchner Fellowship Program is designed specifically for identifying and training the next generation of impact capital allocators capable of understanding and investing effectively in the early-stage companies and innovations.
At the university level, excellent progress has been made in identifying promising technologies; training teams of entrepreneurial thinkers and doers who understand the important role of for-profit, sustainable enterprises that make a difference.
The Kirchner Fellowship is a pioneer in the lean impact investment movement, harnessing the power of highly committed next generation talent to find, fund and assist promising socially responsible, for-profit agricultural businesses.
