What is a social impact business?
A social impact business is a cause-driven organisation that has a conscious ambition to solve local and global community needs and serving the common good,
trough innovative solutions, using the market as the primary choice for its own sustainability.
Social impact businesses are purpose-led,
driven by unique personal stories, and
inspire people within the community.
... but how do you find them?
What is AppyMaps?
AppyMaps is a social impact aggregator platform that is mapping the world's social impact ecosystem, one city at a time.
Through our Apps, Maps and Tours we encourage conscious citizens to support local impact business that are making a difference, as well as help those businesses expand their offerings in the growing social impact ecosystem.

We help you to take Daily Ethical Choices and create Impact around you.
For the People, the Community and the Planet.
Why do we do what we do?
Every choice we make and every action we take has an impact on other people's lives, locally and globally.
In line with the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, we at AppyMaps want to help you play your part in regenerating our cities so that the businesses making a positive impact can continue to do so.
We are mapping the world's social impact ecosystem, one city at a time, to bring people closer to businesses and organisations that are making a difference. By connecting you with an array of brands and ventures (organisations) that are on their own journey to saving the planet, we envision a pathway whereby everyone can play their part in helping regenerate our cities.
We work with communities in the UK and around the world to promote social impact causes, with our app featuring a growing selection of community-led maps, (virtual) tours and a central marketplace where you can buy high quality, ethically-produced products.
