What starts here changes the world.​ For good.

The Impact Factory discovers and disseminates evidence-based best practices in social innovation and entrepreneurship. Leveraging the expertise of our top-tier research university, we share cutting-edge data in peer-reviewed literature and lay media publications, while leading tactical workshops, advising services and relevant community events, including expert panels, for social innovators broadly.

Social Impact Workshops

Social Impact Workshops equip professionals and community members with the knowledge, skills and technical assistance they need to implement programs for public good. For example, one workshop trained African leaders of the Mandela Washington Fellowship on principles of social entrepreneurship in under-resourced settings.

Social Impact Advisors

Social Impact Advisors offer one-on-one support sessions to entrepreneurs, researchers, clinicians, executives, philanthropists, community leaders, faculty, staff and alumni aiming to make positive impact at scale.
