HireUp Just Launched a brand new website that connects companies to underrepresented talent pools!
We help transform the world by solving social problems.
To help corporations and non-profit organizations benefit from social change.
Helping to solve social issues on a global level by contributing to a world in which business success and social change are indivisible.
A commitment to being creative, passionate, courageous and bold.
We believe that there is an urgent need to solve social problems and that real and lasting social change is within reach. Despite this potential, too many people living around the world remain disadvantaged and vulnerable. We don’t believe this is acceptable. While much progress has been made, traditional approaches and mindsets have proved inadequate in reducing poverty and increasing wellbeing. Our promise is to do everything we can to help our clients and funders end poverty, protect the planet and increase opportunity and prosperity.

Impakt removes the line between insider and outsider by quickly and sensitively understanding our issues (and limitations). Impakt was genuinely interested in helping us develop and shape our progress in a way that was beneficial to our entire organization.
- Leslie Quinton, SNC-Lavalin
Impakt is diligent and transparent. Interested in dialogue and creative in developing solutions. They are a safe pair of hands. Most other organizations lack depth and insight so solutions tend to be generic.
- Mide Akerewusi, Pathways to Education Canada
This trusting and transparent environment has allowed us to develop and evolve projects in a collaborative spirit and has ultimately led to a much deeper understanding of our social purpose.
