The Annual Back to Boulder: 
Leading Inclusive Finance in the Digital Age
presented by Boulder Institute in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC)

In light of the COVID-19 situation and our global community’s health & safety, we have cancelled all our 2020 traditional Boulder Programs.  All registrations received so far are being maintained in our database and we will communicate with you directly the new dates and prices for the upcoming ONLINE PROGRAMS. Stay Tuned!


In 2016, Boulder Institute, in partnership with the International Finance Corporation, successfully launched the inaugural Back to Boulder: Leading Inclusive Finance in the Digital Age program.  Since the program’s inception 4 years ago, we have trained 219 C-Suite and other senior management professionals from 56 countries representing 122 institutions, including many top tier MFIs and other financial institutions.

Due to the pandemic, the field of financial inclusion currently faces a contradiction in many markets: clients remain unbanked while certain market pockets have become oversaturated and highly challenging. Our new Back to Boulder: Leading Inclusive Finance in the Digital Age program brings together leaders from within and outside of the microfinance community, as well as international experts in leadership and change management, to provide participants with practical tools, cases and experiences in the areas of:

  • Risk Governance: Developing strategic responses to risk and crisis in order to protect the resiliency of your institution.
  • Competitiveness & Client Centricity: In these times of increased competition for clients’ wallets that comes from new delivery channels and disruptive innovators, we explore how to attract, keep and deepen relationships with clients.
  • Digital Transformation:  What questions do directors need to ask as their teams develop and embark on digital strategies? Guided by innovators and specialists, explore both successful and failed cases while learning how to identify key factors.


The next Back to Boulder will be designed to be highly interactive in order to maximize opportunities for the ONLINE learning and leverage participants’ own exceptional experiences. It is offered in English and registrations are accepted based on eligibility criteria.

This Program dates will be announced soon. For more information regarding the The Annual Back to Boulder program schedule and application process please contact us:
