How can social enterprises, nonprofits, impact investors and purposeful organisations use innovation for a greater social good?

How can nonprofits embrace new mindsets, solve new problems and develop engines for growth?

How can the social sector meet the demands of a new generation of customers, funders and philanthropists? 

This is meaningful impact.

The report

A report to help purpose-driven organisations develop meaningful impact by embracing innovation mindsets, tools, and methods for greater social good — helping them build meaningful brands, more impactful products and fundraising strategies that make a lasting difference. 


All organisations now know to remain relevant, and viable they must innovate or die. The evolution of business models, workplace cultures, brands, and businesses has become the new normal.

Doing good — and being driven by purpose — is now a common link to running a sustainable, profitable, revenue-generating organisation — be it for-profit or for a greater social good.

We look at the trends, people and ideas that are influencing a new generation of a purpose-driven organisation, one that harnesses a new kind of power for a greater kind of good.
