ImpactAimers is unique in its kind as it is entirely organised and facilitated by young social entrepreneurs and changemakers. The initiative was founded during the ChangemakerXchange summit in Istanbul in May 2015.
Currently, the core team consists of three young changemakers who are members of the ChangemakerXchange community. Bontu Guschke was the co-founder of Über den Tellerrand and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Organisational Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Copenhagen Business School. Greta Rossi is the co-founder of Akasha Innovation and Recipes for Wellbeing, and a Project Manager for ChangemakerXchange and Social Innovation to Tackle Fuel Poverty. Ingi Mehus is the founder of Pocket Stories and shares a passion for storytelling, social and cultural inclusion, and youth empowerment.
