Our Story

Our History

Our Founders met in the late 1990’s, working for a large multinational organisation. Together they spotted a gap in the market to supply qualified and experienced IT professionals to businesses working on complex technology projects. They wanted to change the way these services were offered and delivered in the marketplace, and so, in 2005, 4impact Group was established in Brisbane.

With a vision to put people first in a technology-based industry, 4impact Group has, over the years, developed into a business with a strong reputation in the technology industry; adapting and changing to the market over the years.

Our Impact

The Opportunity International Network

Our main avenue of social engagement to date has been through Opportunity International. 4impact contributes a portion of our daily consulting fees to Opportunity International’s microfinance programs which provide innovative financial solutions to empower people, create small businesses and create sustainable transformation in developing communities. Their programs represent a “hand up” not a “hand-out”. Supporting over nine million families across India, the Philippines, Indonesia, China and Ghana, these programs create a bridge to financial inclusion and community development for people living in poverty. We are proud to offer our ongoing support to their initiatives.

Women in Technology

We firmly believe in developing more opportunities for women in technology, so we are developing initiatives to support both SheEO, who are radically transforming how women-led ventures are financed, celebrated and supported, as well as working with organisations like Women in Digital who provide resources and career opportunities to build the Digital leaders of our future.
