FIELD & ECOSYSTEM BUILDING
Aligning with fields of action of Katapult Group
Katapult ‘X’ reaches beyond traditional systems, circles, and silos. The time to mobilize a conscious systemic shift is now.
Katapult is about driving positive and lasting change, not limiting to what’s not right in the status quo, but genuinely collaborating towards a profound systemic shift, from reducing the negatives to facilitating and scaling the positives solutions. That’s why Katapult Future Fest now goes beyond our physical and online presence to become Katapult ‘X’. This elevated vision will mobilize our products and efforts to drive and scale a positive change with impact investing, entrepreneurship and technology for good, and enhancing our consciousness and awareness for ourselves, people and the planet.

the coalitionThe Coalition for Impact (C4i)
The Coalition for Impact is a network of doers. We have established it to co-create activities and projects that could not be implemented by a single network but that call for joint action to trigger exponential scaling and transformative impact.
C4i also supports cooperative projects of two or more member networks as well as activities initiated by individual members of those networks. This means that we pass the ball to you. We call on individual network members committed to collaborating towards a world which values positive impact as their core criteria of success and who recognize the potential of impact investing as a means to build a more inclusive financial system.
