About Us

We want research to improve the world.

We are born from one of the largest research institutes in Australia, Perth’s Telethon Kids Institute and understand first-hand the challenges of meaningfully communicating the impact of research.

Momentum Empowering Impact was developed out of a real-world need to understand and communicate the impact of research during a research process that often takes many years.

Our executive team and board are made up of people who have been researchers and worked in research leadership and administration. We understand the challenges of collecting the information needed to demonstrate the impact of research.

We want research to improve the world. Want investment in great research and for funders to make great investments.
