The Impact Alliance promotes productive partnerships among actors to transcend their individual constraints. Through Impact Ventures we identify innovative social enterprises, connect them to global demand and help take them to scale.
The Impact Alliance assists development organizations, local service providers and social entrepreneurs to transcend their immediate organizational or geographic boundaries, identifying effective approaches, pooling resources and stimulating collaborative joint-action. The Impact Alliance catalyzes multi-stakeholder partnerships that inspire entrepreneurship and enable social ventures to achieve greater scale and social impact.
Impact Ventures supports innovative approaches such as the Local Governance Barometer to emerge from among its members. We provide a platform to highlight innovations that have proven to make a difference in a local setting, attracting implementing organizations, entrepreneurs, and donors who would like to apply it more broadly.
