While there is progress in addressing global humanitarian and planetary needs, the world still faces serious social and environmental challenges. The digital divide persists. The new Web3 space is moving fast and we don’t want to see Impact Initiatives, both for and non-profit left behind. We are committed to expansive inclusion of underrepresented groups in this new evolution of business and philanthropy.
THE BIG PICTURE
To create the world’s first Web3 ecosystem combining edu-tec, with influence, tech trends and real value to eradicate exclusion, bridge the digital divide and scale vetted SDG impact like never before.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
To make emerging tech accessible through ongoing support, education and continual action for vetted social and environmental impact outcomes.
We’ve spent years working across industries and sectors- non profit, for profit, for benefit, private, third, public and have personally seen budgets of hundreds of millions allocated to impact initiatives aiming to solve numerous problems, in various parts of the world. We’ve grown frustrated, and disillusioned. Despite money pouring into solutions and efforts, we are still in a position where the world’s most pressing problems remain, and frankly, we’ve had enough. We’ve grown tired of seeing wasted resource as the wheel is continually reinvented, tired of seeing great initiatives fail because they don’t have the support they need to evidence the impact they have or can have, tired of great reports, (rather than impact), getting funding over and above real impact or measurable results, tired of solutions not being scaled, and we’re tired of seeing trillions spent and EVERYONE talking about funding, sustainability, net zero, carbon offsetting and all the other buzz words without any significant movement in a strategic, coordinated and meaningful way.
Yes we can set targets as all countries are now doing, and it is said that it will take approximately $2.5 trillion per year if we want to achieve the sustainable development goals by 2030, but we could spend 10x that and not reach them if we continue to work in the way that we have done. We still won’t stand a chance if money is thrown at impact without adequate benchmarks, management and measurement, without learning from what and who has come before, and without a view of on how we strategically move forward in a coordinated way that helps us to amplify impact through collaboration, scaling solutions and matching funds to validated impact in a meritocratic way.
The Impactoverse aims to leverage technology to provide a solution that incentivises partnerships, offers the benefit of a collective body of knowledge, allows for scaling of solutions, removes funding bias and matches funding to vetted impact. We are thinking bigger and bolder with the aim of working together to make the dream of a better world, a reality.
We invite you to join us!

My interest in Impact started way back when in the late 1980s after seeing an article in the LA Times about Muhammad Yunus’ fledgling Grameen Bank. From that time on, I began to look for ways to leverage my marketing background to source and start Impact projects.
