Supporting ten innovative organizations to build a better world, faster

In partnership with the Google.org impact challenge, we are supporting 10 tech-enabled projects to tackle Canada's biggest social challenges.

We leverage our expertise and sector partner network in two ways:

 
WorkshopTraining_icon_transparent_bw.png

GIC Workshops | We have developed a curriculum of insights to support grantees in key growth areas through interactive, collaborative workshops. Sessions are hosted throughout the year and touch on the following themes: strategy and impact, technology and marketing, best-in-class support, and fundraising.

Hands-on Support | Grantees receive hands-on support the year following the Google Impact Challenge from Google Ambassadors and BCG Catalyst teams to help bring their projects to life. Volunteers support project management, strategy and execution. LEAP sector partners will provide high-level expertise throughout the process.


Ten organizations were selected as winners of the Google.org Impact Challenge. While diverse in focus area, structure and geographic location, they all share one common thread: a bold commitment to creating a better world, faster.
