About Us

Expert Impact is supporting social entrepreneurs to scale, with introductions, mentoring and advice from experts.

UK entrepreneurs are tackling a wide range of important issues in education, healthcare, arts, science, poverty, and the environment. Guidance from experienced entrepreneurs who've faced similar challenges and have overcome them is invaluable to help these ventures reach their full potential as quickly as possible. Because the experts who want to help are not always connected to those who need them we have created Expert Impact to speed up advances in these critical areas.
