We study and measure the impact generated by startups throughout Latin America

The unique methodology of iImpact validates the impact generated by hundreds of startups across Latin America, in line with the 17 UN SDGs.

All impact generating startups must participate!

The iIMPACT seal aims to recognize, through the methodology led by Professor Fabian Salum, from Fundação Dom Cabral, the social and environmental contribution of startups, whether they are businesses with impact or not. Qualify and show customers and investors that you are aligned with the SDGs.
