Mission statement:

Our Purpose:
NewImpact seeks to drive societal progress at scale faster. We ignite and
forge tri-sector innovation to unleash massive global resources for economic, social, and environmental progress. We are business model innovators who are passionate about upgrading capitalism and benefitting society.
The Problem:
Everyday millions of people are left behind and solutions are overlooked because our problem-solving methods are slow, siloed, and unsustainable. We waste billions of dollars and miss opportunities to transform our society and advance environmental well-being. We can do better. We need new solutions that generate lasting impact. We need to realign and repurpose the resources we already have to solve problems. It’s time to create solutions that compound and radiate impact, making companies stronger, non-profits more effective, and governments more efficient.
Who We Are:
We are a humanity-benefit non-profit, connecting and empowering people in every organization in the world to reimagine how we find opportunities and solve problems.  We uncover and connect vital resources and insights often overlooked or underutilized. This approach enables faster and better innovation. Our open tri-sector data tools and innovation processes reveal unseen opportunities for change, allowing communities, companies, non-profits, and governments to align interests and leverage knowledge and resources to bring new solutions to life. NewImpact is the catalyst that unlocks stronger solutions that drive self-sustaining impact.
