Create A Lasting Impact In Developing Communities
We are experts in validating business ideas and products in developing nations to ensure the project is viable enough to make a long-term impact

Reduce the time spent to validate your product or service by up to 10 months

Traditionally, it takes an entrepreneur around 18 months and $250,000 to validate their product and market fit and get to the stage where they are ready to raise capital. We have built a unique, tried-and-tested model which allows our clients to go through this process in approximately 8 months.

This includes several months of on the ground testing in up to 5 developing markets at a fraction of the cost. As well as comprehensive business planning and validation work to assist in preparation for capital raising activities. Our process will minimise the risk involved, ensure you spend less capital to research the viability of the project, and improve the chance of making a lasting, positive impact.

We can minimise the risks of your venture and help your business make a real difference

Sadly, many businesses which aim to make a social impact never make it past the initial development stages. This is due to a variety of reasons. For some, concept validation and market testing is too difficult (due to resourcing restraints, expensive, or poorly executed). For others, the perceived risk of a failed venture affecting other aspects of the business becomes too great.

Our role is to reduce these risks and give you the resources and strategies to overcome any obstacles you face. This maximises the chance of a successful impact strategy, enabling us to achieve our shared goal – to help those who need it most.

Impact partners typically reduce the costs of their social business by 50-70%

Many social impact businesses run over budget and are unable to make the project financially profitable. This can affect both the business and the community they were trying to enable. To ensure your idea can be implemented both efficiently and effectively, we will carefully examine all aspects of the project from the outset.

You can leverage our passion, expertise and network to transition from idea conception to implementation in a short timeframe. With our help, you’ll be able to decrease the costs of testing and validating your venture by 50% and increase the chance of a profitable business model.

Our collaborative market testing
and validation process minimises the
risk to your business

Our specialist team can work with you to minimise (or mitigate) some of the inherent risks that exist for businesses working with developing communities. By working collaboratively, our 3 step process will help develop your initial idea, find the ideal market for implementation and work out how to do so profitably, while ensuring genuine impact is achieved.

Hear Why Businesses Love Being An Impact Partner

You guys are doing a really good thing because this changes lives

Seru, Village Pastor, Fiji

When I discovered Solar my business changed. Now I’m able to work past sundown and into the night; customers are able to see my stall and they are attracted to it by the lights…With the loan system, I can pay in small instalments. This makes the solar affordable for everyone. For villagers like me, the solar product is extremely useful. It allows people with no access to electricity to gain access to the social benefits light will bring.
