We are an innovative start-up and accredited spin-off of the University of Milano-Bicocca that provides services and develops digital products for the measurement, enhancement and management of impacts in a perspective of integrated sustainability.

We were founded in 2019 thanks to the meeting of a mix of experiences and skills coming from the world of academic research, social innovation and digital development. We enable new forms of shared value creation by combining impact and digital expertise. We firmly believe in putting research into practice with the goal of using impact information to change the conception of value, no longer solely economic but also social and environmental.

how

We want to help overcoming the cultural and technical barriers of impact measurability, promoting the development of a society that recognises and rewards social and environmental value.

why

“We believe that the need to link social and technical innovation has become evident, to radically regenerate institutions and governance at all levels. Our generation is already mobilized to respond to this challenge, aware of the tragic consequences that indifference can entail “. Inspired by Limits to Growth, Club of Rome, 1972
