Impactionate is an online platform that aims to raise funds for social entrepreneurs and businesses running sustainable developmental projects in Nigeria.
The rise of Nigeria is inevitable. However, how we rise– and how far we go– is entirely up to us. For the last 56 years, we the people have gotten comfortable taking the backseat on our own journey to success. The era when we simply discussed who did what for our country, and when, is over. With Impactionate, we the people are taking back the wheels.
The platform is designed to connect medium-to-large scale projects in Nigeria to donors in diaspora. The idea of Impactionate was born from a need to simultaneously improve on our strengths, address our weaknesses and maximize available opportunities. Our untapped resources and limited access to funding have long stifled the rising generation’s dedication to Nigeria’s growth. Through technology, we aim to connect social entrepreneurs to millions of people who are willing to donate towards various causes, using our platform whilst ensuring transparency and accountability in the process. By facilitating transparent crowdfunding of projects by passionate Nigerians, we’ll accountably transform hopes and dreams into positively impactful actions.
Nigeria’s greatest strength lies in its people. Impactionate will capitalize on this strength to empower the change makers in our societies, and therefore ensure sustainable development that will position capable Nigerian citizens at the forefront of our country’s success.
