ORGANIZATION: M4A Foundation - CrowdDoing


Impact Investing Course Go-To-Market Specialist is building an impact investing course for social entrepreneurs. We have content experts involved and have already recorded hours of it. We need go-to-market specialist volunteers to to help us reach our target audience. We will then leverage our storytellers to ensure this information reaches people in a way that makes it accessible.

Volunteers should have comfort in collaborating in an inter-disciplinary capacity on instructional design.
