Since 2015 Impact Seed has been committed to growing the market for impact investment and social enterprise in Western Australia. We develop awareness of and grow capacity across these sectors through strategic initiatives such as supporting the development of the WA Impact Investment Alliance (2019), and the WA Social Enterprise Council (2021).
We also raise awareness of, education in, and support for impact investment, social innovation and social enterprise across government, corporate, not for profit sectors, and family offices in WA. Occasionally we develop working papers and educational programs and materials through our engagement processes. Links to public papers and materials can be found below.
