We TRANSFORM lives by tackling global challenges through life-changing enterprise.

TRANSFORM is based on a desire to address urgent issues by learning from each other. Established in 2015 and led by Unilever, the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office and EY, we have a proven model and an ambition to increase our impact across Africa, Asia and beyond.

We combine grant funding, business insight, on-the-ground experience, resources and networks. Our tailored approach creates evidence which we share widely to help leaders across the world solve global challenges. The initiative has supported over 100 projects in 17 countries so far.

Our enterprises and the services they provide answer some of the most persistent development challenges. From e-commerce access through to digital healthcare solutions or sanitation services, TRANSFORM enterprises take an agile and consumer-focussed approach to meeting the needs of the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Get involved today through the TRANSFORM Support Hub.

The TRANSFORM Support Hub is an on-demand acceleration platform scaling sustainable and equitable business models of the future – for impact enterprises, corporations, and the people working within them.

The TRANSFORM Support Hub, launched together with MovingWorlds, SAP, and Unilever, is a global platform combining education, pro bono consulting, and cross-sector connection building to help impact enterprises build commercial partnerships, while at the same helping corporations educate and engage employees at scale to embed ESG throughout their core businesses. Discover new avenues for corporate social responsibility and explore the world of online gaming with Inclave casinos Australia, where entertainment can potentially contribute to positive social impact initiatives.

If you’re an impact enterprise we can connect you with pro bono experts, cost-saving guides, corporate sales opportunities, and follow-on funders.

If you’re a professional or corporate organisation, get in touch to support impact enterprises with your skills, expertise, and network.
