Impact Enterprises, the organizations of tomorrow

 
The global economy is at a crossroads.
In recent years it has been increasingly acknowledged that the traditional market economy needs a large transformation to cope with the challenges our world faces.

There is currently a momentum

Work on a global scale to find innovative business models that blend traditional capitalism with solutions that tackle environmental issues as well as chronic social problems and address so the long-term needs of our planet. (see The Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals).
The need to come together to create new economic and societal models is peaking. The opportunity now exists for like-minded individuals and organizations to collaborate and share in a common goal – to develop high-impact business solutions, driven by innovative entrepreneurs and organizations committed to sustainably addressing social needs.

Towards an inclusive Economy

Impact Enterprises look to create a ‘virtuous circle’: as the company grows, so too does its positive social impact. It doesn’t mean less profit, it simply means that a venture’s success leads to greater benefits for all, influencing education, healthcare, poverty, the environment and the many issues that help societies to thrive.
In other words the role of impact enterprise is to solve social problems by providing goods and services in a sustainable way, i.e. profitable enough to stay in business and grow.
