Impact Index’s assessment provides insight into each company’s impact. We use this data to classify each company into one of six archetypes. To create the archetypes, we consider the following dimensions:

Establishment and Transparency

This includes assessment of the company’s growth stage, openness to share information and financial situation.


We consider the company’s likely scale of impact and the potential innovation of its value proposition and business model.


Using the Impact Management Project (IMP)’s risk factors, we evaluate how likely the impact is to occur as expected.
