Gov CIO Outlook | Tuesday, September 22, 2020

X4Impact fills a gap in the social impact space by creating a single online destination to help charitable organizations with the technology solutions they need to address complex social issues.

FREMONT, CA: X4Impact, a market intelligence platform for social innovation, launches during the 2020 UN General Assembly to support innovation and collaboration between U.S. nonprofits and social sector organizations in the wake of COVID-19 with free access for all. X4Impact offers insights to create and scale technology for public interest. Built on Microsoft Azure, it leverages the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals framework to aggregate challenges, ideas, solutions, over $2 Trillion in money flow, and 80+ million pieces of aggregated knowledge from trusted sources.

During its private beta period, the platform offered tangible results, including connecting ideas with funders, assisting nonprofits in raising the visibility of systemic issues, and helping social entrepreneurs assess the addressable market opportunity and inform the best market path. X4Impact aims to democratize access to data aggregated from the private, public, academic, and philanthropic sectors.

The rich data intelligence and collaboration tools allow social entrepreneurs and technologists to use the cloud's power to become global citizens, working side-by-side with the nonprofits, local governments, and academic institutions.

The platform's key components include the Safe Search Engine for Social Innovation, Social Impact Funding Tools, Challenges & Ideas Collaborative, and Solutions Showcase. X4Impact, as a platform, attracts attention to the issue of economic mobility and collaborate on research linking workforce inclusion to public policy. As the world wakes up from the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic recession, companies believe in a renaissance period where they will focus their energy on solving pressing social issues. The launch of the X4Impact can make it all seamless.
