Unpack Impact is an interdisciplinary research initiative demonstrating the business case for including beneficiaries in the design of projects/services intended to improve their lives.


Unpack Impact is investigating a crital question: More than ever before, today’s leading for-profit companies are involving consumers in the design of products and services. Yet why is it that beneficiaries continue to be largely excluded from design processes in the for-impact sector (non-profits, social enterprise,development agencies, and the vehicles by which they are funded:philanthrophy, impact-investing, and aid)?
