We want research to improve the world.

Grow Impact was born out of one of the largest research institutes in Australia, the Telethon Kids Institute.

We are responding to the need of research organisations to understand and communicate to stakeholders and funders their progress towards impact during a research journey that often takes many years.

Our executive team and board includes those that work in software and research, and personally understand the challenges of collecting the information needed to demonstrate the impact of research.

Our vision is simple. We want research to improve the world. We want to create transparent partnerships between research organisations, funders and stakeholders so that great investments are made in meaningful research.

Solving the research impact challenge

Funders and stakeholders increasingly want to understand where they fit into the research journey.

The research journey often plays out over a number of years, during which funders and stakeholders contribute in different ways and at different times.

Traditional reporting, such as metrics and case studies, can't easily show where they fit into this journey and how their contribution helps progress research.

Funders and Stakeholders

Funders and stakeholders want to understand how their support helps solve big research problems.

"Where does my funding go?"


Researchers want to be able to tell funders and stakeholders what they are doing with their support.

"How do I get funders to understand my progress and continue to support me?"

Imagine if there was a way to connect funders and stakeholders with researchers so that those who invest time, money and heart in research can understand how they progress research. Well there is, this is what Grow Impact does.
