FMS trainings are offered in Monterey and Amsterdam

Frontier Market Scouts offers a 2-week training in Monterey and Amsterdam every winter and summer.

The certificate program is designed and delivered by experienced professionals in the social and commercial venture investment industries. They understand the mission of the Frontier Market Scouts Program and what it takes to make a great Frontier Market Scout.

The FMS field placement fellowship option is a key part of a self-sustaining ecosystem for social enterprise development and investment, designed to enable entrepreneurs in the “missing middle,” those ventures that are too large to receive microfinance funds, and those that are too small to attract traditional venture funding.

Participants may choose to apply for the certification training program or the combination of training follow by a 2-12 month field placement fellowship
