Name: Investors in Community
Founder: Philip Webb
Country: United Kingdom
Pain/Problem: Many businesses operate in an altruistic manner, believing that being a good community citizen is just the right thing to do. Sadly, many don’t capture the value created and see their CSR initiatives cut during difficult economic times. Showing and communicating the value of CSR initiatives was disjointed. The ecosystem was broken.
Impact Innovation: Innovation is not synonymous with CSR and the charity sector due to the perceived lack of monetary potential. IIC wanted to change that, and turn the world of Social Good matchmaking on this collective head. The end-to-end ecosystem of CSR was ripe for transformation.
Systems thinking uncovered the gaps between CSR initiatives and the causes that deliver the impact.
