Impact Collective is uniquely placed within the social enterprise development landscape in Western Australia, working collaboratively with social entrepreneurs and change-makers who have business ideas to impact positively on WA communities. Impact Collective provides in-kind support and financial investment for social enterprise ideas, filling a critical seed-funding role in impact investment. This collaborative approach to social enterprise development with NFP organisations is innovative and relatively untested in Australia. It sits in stark contrast to the traditional angel and VC funding landscape.
As a collective of leading community services NFP organisations, Impact Collective holds a wealth of sector knowledge, and has been engaged in solving complex social issues for many decades. Impact Collective is well placed to support social entrepreneurs to fully understand and appreciate the social issues that they are trying to address in a collaborative partnership approach.
