Empact Ventures helps the world’s leading entrepreneurship initiatives, high-impact non-profit causes and emerging startups to create social/economic impact through collaborative partnerships and initiatives such as:
Centre for Entrepreneurs (UK – London)
The Centre for Entrepreneurs promotes the role of entrepreneurs in creating economic growth and social well-being. It is home to national enterprise campaign, StartUp Britain. The Centre is an independent non-profit think tank founded and chaired by Sunday Times columnist and serial entrepreneur Luke Johnson and housed within the Legatum Institute – a non-partisan think tank best known for its annual Prosperity Index. The Centre researches and communicates the positive impact of entrepreneurs on the economy and society; defends entrepreneurs from over-regulation, unhelpful legislation, over-taxation and monopolistic large firms; and encourages entrepreneurship as a career choice.
StartUp Britain is a national campaign by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs to celebrate, inspire and accelerate enterprise in the UK.
It is the UK’s largest entrepreneurship campaign in partnership with NatWest and 123 Reg which provides free mentoring to 20,000 aspiring entrepreneurs through its 60+ city bus tour tour.
The campaign was founded by eight entrepreneurs and launched on 28 March 2011 by Prime Minister David Cameron with the support of the Chancellor and HM Government, although it is completely funded by private-sector sponsors. In June 2016, it was launched at Buckingham Palace with HRH Duke of York.
Seven is a global accelerator fund in partnership with the UK Government’s Department for International Trade Global Entrepreneur Programme providing a bridge for early-stage tech startups from around the world to land and grow into the UK ecosystem backed by the leading tech accelerators like TechStars, Startup Bootcamp and Ignite. With on-going hands-on involvement of its highly experienced team, Seven aims at creating and maintaining a highly valuable portfolio of companies coming from regions abundant in technical talent, based in the best startup launch-pad in Europe, the UK.
Qapitol QA (UK – Milton Keynes & India)

The Venus Awards (UK – Nationwide)
Referred to as the Working Women’s Oscars, the Venus Awards were formed in 2009 to recognise, reward and celebrate local working women in business. The Venus Awards began in Dorset and has since exploded into other regions across the country.
Culminating with an annual National Final that truly represents the inspirational women who balance and juggle their lives relentlessly and unconditionally, who inject their communities with a sense of feminine robustness and solidity only a woman can provide.
Business Rocks is Manchester’s global Tech, Music & Investment Summit. The event is designed to raise the Cities profile on the international tech and investment scene, painting Manchester as the vibrant, multi-cultural, music and techhub that it is.
Reload Greece is the Hub of Youth Entrepreneurship in London, aiming to ensure that young people will develop skills in entrepreneurship and social innovation that will help their communities develop both socially and economically. Our thinking is that as communities benefit, they will offer viable options for the future generations of entrepreneurs and social innovators. It’s a virtuous circle.
It all started in March 2012 by five young Greek volunteers and now includes over 30 volunteers. They took on the responsibility of promoting the charity’s objects by exploring entrepreneurial case studies to educate young people about business, commerce and entrepreneurship. The Reload team likes to call these passionate and innovative young people “Reloaders”.
Reloaders are people with global outlook who think innovatively about enterprises. They are innovative, entrepreneurial and daring enough to believe they can build UK based businesses that are inherently globally oriented with the intent to be able to give back to their communities.
