Frontier Market Scouts

Welcome to the Frontier Market Scouts Program

Frontier Market Scouts Program selects and trains young leaders to become entrepreneurial scouts and investment managers serving social impact investment funds in low-income regions of the world. The program is a partnership between the Monterey Institute of International Studies (www.miis.edu) and the Sanghata Institute for Social Entrepreneurship and Investment.


Description:   Frontier Market Scouts Program selects students with solid background in business and management, experience and adaptability in challenging international environment, and a strong belief in entrepreneurial and market development as one of the most important means to sustainable improvement of living standards in low-income regions. The Program employs leading experts and practioners in social entrepreneurship and investment to provide intensive, hands-on pre-deployment training to the scouts. Scouts surviving the training program are deployed by leading social and commercial investors to work directly with indigenous entrepreneurs all over the world.

General Information: 

Frontier Market Scouts Program runs two month-long training programs in January and June every year. Scouts being deployed must commit themselves to a six-month assignment on the ground in one of the poorest regions in the world, under the supervision of a social impact investment firm. A small stipend and/or living assistance are provided to scouts deployed. Admission to Frontier Market Scouts Program is highly competitive.

Mission:

The mission of the Frontier Market Scouts program is to enable capital flow to bottom-of-the-pyramid entrepreneurial projects and generate sustainable, positive social and economic impact for the poor, while providing the scouts with rewarding life experiences and career opportunities.
