“The Sketch May Have Taken Me Five Minutes, But the Learning Took Me 30 Years”

Making A Profit While Making A Difference

Twenty-six years ago, our father co-created the now global platform of "Making A Profit While Making A. Difference". Today, as can been seen from examples such as Larry Fink's Letter to CEO's, and the Business Roundtables commitment to value all stakeholders equally, global business have adopted the Leadership and Management strategy of  "Profit and Purpose".

Whether our father was 26 years too early or current corporate leadership was 26 years too late is now moot as we have all arrived in the same place. However, at In Place Impact we have decades of experience that others simply do not have.

 

After using the Leadership and Management strategy of Profit and Purpose to create almost $1Billion in realized shareholder value from the companies he started and sold, and or worked with, our father has spent the past 10 years designing a way for economics to eradicate poverty. In other words, the epitome of his thesis. 

The result is In Place Impact, the only organization in the world that is purposed to transform the consulting industry so that in the normal course of doing what is required to help clients achieve and exceed their goals, it naturally helps build communities that are economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for all residents.  It is all done through business and economics, and no one is asked to give up or donate their gains, and it has a heavy focus on helping communities attain the SDGs. 

Our unique model is founded upon Impact Economics and Inclusive Capitalism and it:

 

  • Provides ALL community stakeholders with a seat at the economic table

  • Drives "wins" for each stakeholder, however when one "wins", they all "win" because in today's world win-lose is actually lose-lose

  • Increases economic vibrancy throughout all segments of a community

  • Empowers ALL community residents to participate in and personally benefit from the creation of an inclusive sustainable future

  • Embraces Impact Entrepreneurship, Impact Investing, and Impact Measurement

  • Removes capital flow choke points 

  • Is self-funding

  • Gives 6,000 people the ability to build their own for-profit company purposed to embed our model within their communities

  • Helps funds the attainment of the SDGs

  • Uses business and economics to fight poverty

Once at scale, our model has been designed to be the catalyst for following annual impact:

  • Generating over $2 Billion each year to help fund and expand Impact Studies (consequential learning) and SDG studies in Colleges and Universities

  • Contributing over $600,000,000 to community-based Impact Investment funds

  • Teaching 2,000,000 people Impact related studies

  • Launching 1,000 community built, Impact focused innovations purposed to help attain one or more of the SDG's

  • Helping 500,000 businesses embrace and benefit from Leadership and Management through the lens of Profit and Purpose 

Headquartered in Charleston, SC, and after two successful 5-year pilots, we are now rolling out our model across the world. In order to create the biggest possible impact, we have designed a Certification model that aligns with the thesis of "Make A Profit, While Making a Difference". 

To Quote Our Father

"What is in our heads will make us marginally dangerous to the status quo, however, what is in our hearts will make us a

global force to be reckoned with". 

We are a family business that chose to focus on making a difference. As such, if you are interested in becoming a part of this journey, the first filter you must pass is to be aligned with the passion and purpose of our mission. If that is in your DNA, read our entire website, then apply using the form you will find here.

Kind regards, Emily, Alexander, and Olivia Williams.
