“When they discover that they have a conscious competitor, traditional companies are likely to find that their ability to attract customers, employees, investors and suppliers will diminish greatly.” (Ernst & Young)
Identifying and ‘owning’ your social and environmental purpose is no longer ‘nice to have’, it’s a business imperative which will not only align with sustainability goals but improve employee, stakeholder and customer engagement, and deliver a competitive edge.
Far beyond the current trend of ‘purpose-marketing‘, Impact Seed specialises in purpose and impact measurement methods that are customised based on recognised international frameworks and methodologies (for example, the Global Impact Investing Network’s IRIS, Social Return on Investment, and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals), which are favoured by impact investment funds globally.
Impact Seed is Western Australia's peak impact investment & social venture advisory. Our purpose is market development, capacity building both supply and demand sides of the WA market in conversation with social impact ventures, government, CSR not-for-profits and private wealth, and demonstrating why the ‘business for purpose’ model works in bridging investment and philanthropy.
We advocate, educate and develop co-investment opportunities and deal flow in WA social enterprises and ventures focused on social innovation, profit for purpose, and with a clear social impact purpose front and centre.
