Company Mission

We are development professionals with real on-the-ground experience in implementing and managing solidarity projects.                                                                                                        

AidImpact creates tools that are perfectly suited to managing projects run by organizations operating in the solidarity sector. Both simple and very specific, these tools use innovative technologies to facilitate information gathering and processing as well as reporting to donors and backers.

Starting point of the mission

AidImpact was born of its founders’ conviction that there was a real need for software specifically designed to meet the needs of organizations operating in the solidarity sector.

During their careers at a wide range of organizations involved in the fields of development and solidarity (NGOs, World Bank, United Nations and European Union), the AidImpact founders identified a lack of tools really suited to managing solidarity projects.

As a result, they decided to set up a company offering IT solutions specifically for the development context.

The first software package was the result of 18 months of R&D and involved more than ten experts, including a software architect, database experts and a memory optimization expert. This first solution and the others than followed improve the effectiveness of aid provided and increase and measure the effect of actions undertaken.

Since the company’s creation in 2006, AidImpact software has been rolled-out in more than 30 countries and is used by over 1,000 people.

Organization

The company AidImpact SAS was created in May 2006.

It does not ask for external capital and is independent of all industrial and financial groups.
