About Us
Proof of Impact (POI) aims to lead the next evolution of business intelligence through verified ESG & Impact Data.

We believe that all future decisions, whether it be business decisions, investment decisions, or broad consumer behavior, will be influenced by their effect on people and the planet. This can only be achieved through real-time access to verified impact data. Therefore, we are building the digital infrastructure that will drive that transformation in the market.

POI is a US company headquartered in Delaware but is operating globally with a distributed remote team. We have just successfully closed our $6M Pre-Series A round in July with an impressive cap table including Rakuten, Franklin Templeton Investments, Working Capital Fund, CV VC, Pangea Blockchain, Ausum Ventures, and other high-profile angel investors.
