A critical paradigm shift is taking hold in global development.  In the midst of uncertainty regarding the future of foreign aidnew actors have entered the space, offering fresh ideas and unique perspectives. Governments are brokering unprecedented cross-sector alliances, non-profits are embracing market-driven solutions, and businesses are harnessing the power of technology for social good.  

impactXdesign, a social impact advisory firm, was launched in 2014 to help accelerate this paradigm shift.  

Our philosophy is rooted in four basic principles:

  • Good design drives greater social impact.
  • Cross-sector collaboration is essential for scaling outcomes. 
  • Successful solutions are designed by communities most directly affected by the problem.  
  • Every individual, given the opportunity, has the power to improve society.
