ABOUT US

Impactr

Impactr is an Australian / Danish start-up on a mission to drive positive change through technology and unleash the power of social-media for good.

With the Impactr social activity app you record and share positive activities that make a difference in your life, the lives of others or the world around you. By recording 10-second short videos called “ripples”, people join others in activities and create ripple-chains together.

Mission

Re-engineer social media to make a positive impact on the world.

Progress

The Impactr App has been developed in close collaboration with one of the leading App Development companies in Australia and is soon completing its 6 month beta-test period with a high level of user engagement and retention. The Impactr App is a video app with ´classic´ social networking features (P2P messaging, notifications, discovery, etc.) as well as unique innovations in gamification, algorithm, curation and UX.
