A collective force for change and positive impact

The Impact Office (a.k.a. TIO), a new breed of single-family offices that aligns purpose and profit, acting as a collective force for change and positive impact, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Helsinki Partners to present the House of Impact (HOI) on November 29th in Helsinki!

What is the House of Impact? 

Inspired by the ‘House of X’ in Davos, this year we’re creating the ‘House of Impact’ in Helsinki during Slush. Our aim is to bring together diverse impact stakeholders, allowing them to connect, learn, and engage in inspirational conversations that lead to tangible actions and measurable results. 

Our objective is to establish a platform for transparent and candid discussions about impact, fostering collaborations that translate into meaningful actions.

We operate as a collective entity supported by exceptional partners, all sharing a common purpose: bringing everyone together to drive positive impact.
