Our Impact

As a social enterprise ourselves, Impact Boom believes knowledge and education are the keys to healthier communities and a better world.

Impact Boom works with disadvantaged community members to provide opportunities for positive change. For every place filled on our Elevate+ Program, we provide one spot for a community member to participate in a hands-on entrepreneurship and creativity workshop.

Alongside the first round of the Elevate+ Program, in order to help close the education gap, Impact Boom has committed to providing a creativity and innovation workshop for 25 Indigenous Australians alongside our collaborators Barayamal.


The world has plenty of ideas, people and resources (although some are fast running out).

What the world needs is an impact boom.


Impact Boom is a Seven Positive initiative.
