Facilitating impact and innovation through advisory services

What is Technical Assistance?

In order to enhance the development impacts of our investments, responsAbility has been managing advisory services since 2009. And in 2014, responsAbility established a dedicated non-profit unit composed of project management professionals. This team is in charge of developing tailored advisory support, identifying and selecting specialized experts and managing project implementation, all in close collaboration with the investment teams. Advisory support can be provided to build the capacity required to bridge knowledge gaps, ensure adherence with sectors’ best practices and principles, capture market potential, reduce risks, and support the funds in fulfilling their role as market enablers and as establishers of sustainable business models. This advisory support is key to the success and growth of responsAbility-managed investments.
