Providing sustainable knowledge is the aim of IMPACTE. We believe that growth and learning are linked, and that economic, social and organizational development can be achieved through knowledge sharing. We believe we can enable this process in a more impactful, honest and transparent way. We plan, we adapt, we communicate, we help you make it happen.

The Team

We are a development consulting company, dedicated to providing technical assistance services to private and public organizations in the areas of economic, social and organizational development.
