About ImpactX

Humanity is faced with unprecedented challenges, changes, and chances. Never before has taking part in taking action been so vital. We believe this new decade will be the era of Everyone A Changemaker. Whether you are a social entrepreneur, an impact investor or donor, an impact project manager, or an interested observer, we welcome you to use the tools offered by the ImpactX Platform. We want to share with you what led a small group of technology people with deep experience in humanitarian missions and system change endeavors to establish ImpactX.

We observed an explosion of activity in impact projects, donations and investing.  We also observed that many Impactors – organizations and individuals – are doing challenging work without the benefit of web tools that can help efficiency and productivity.  We felt compelled to develop a web platform that could become the Impactor’s technology partner.

That meant delivering high value, low cost services.  It also meant building tools that are easy for users to learn and use every day, including changemakers who are not professional humanitarians or investors with IT budgets and staff.

We started with two goals. First, help impact people network and share information online. Second, provide a digital home for impact projects and initiatives, where online tools would make it easier to do core functions, such as tracking milestones, communicating with stakeholders, gathering and interpreting data across your ecosystem of players, and permitting direct funding to projects.

We observe the impact ecosystem clamoring for ways to verify, measure and compare impact. Verification and measurement information helps us all know where to focus resources and energy so the needle moves on SDGs. We know that digital technology will be essential to making this kind of information available and actionable, so we turned our attention to developing impact measurement tools. We are not quite ready to show you what we’ve been working on, but stay tuned to see what new ImpactX services will be available soon.

We want to make this clear: we believe everyone can be a changemaker. We believe there is a much wider array of players and worthwhile solutions waiting to get into the impact zone than is currently represented by professional philanthropists and social impact investors. We see ImpactX helping to unleash a vast swell of new social impact activity at the individual, community, and adhoc group level. We intend to broaden the impactor tent by being the place for these less traditional impact players and their projects to live, get discovered and funded, and thrive. We are especially proud of our work with Ashoka and The Community Independence Initiative on ways to support peer-driven changemaking by people who are not normally regarded as proficient at exercising agency to improve themselves or their environments – including the poor and young people

Second, we want to offer an alternative to the proprietary, siloed world of impact data that inhibits us from learning from each other. The IXP is in the cloud, accessible to anyone with an internet connection. The IXP is a place to manage impact work and network, and to the extent you choose, to also share data. Unlike Facebook and others, IXP users own and control the data they upload. , We don’t sell or mine data on the IXP – although we reserve the right to anonymize and aggregate data in the service of analytics.
