Everyone is able to create an impact. Whether it will be for society, ecology, technology, every action will be reflected in the future. The last few years and months have highlighted many difficulties we have to deal with. We act individually, organize grassroots initiatives, think about sustainability, convince ourselves of second-hand items, donate to community organizations, and volunteer.


However, there are entities that have a plan for this! And it's not just non-profits that are set up to do so. Startups, large companies, universities - they are all starting to make impact part of their DNA. It is not about running a business and making an impact in the process. Business and technology go hand in hand with impact.
