Career

impak Finance mission is to put finance at the service of the social impact economy.

impak Finance achieves this by incorporating the latest financial technologies into its products, by redesigning the user experience, and by implementing the principles of collaboration, participation, co-creation and transparency.

Our business vision is to bridge the gap between impact companies, investors and citizens by offering them an easy and rewarding way to use their money daily as a catalyst for social change.

The synergies and complementarity between impak network app, impak Coin digital currency, impak e-wallet, impak Capital activities and the future impak Bank are the embodiment of the impak Finance project which is rooted locally and takes life through the dynamism of impact communities across the country and the world.
