our story

The story of Generate Impact began in 2012 when our CEO, Chiedo John, launched Chiedo Labs, while finishing his Computer Science degree at James Madison University.

By year six, we had worked on hundreds of websites and apps but felt the calling to be about more than profit. We wanted the technology we created to improve peoples’ lives. So we doubled down on the work we felt most inspired by and in 2019 Generate Impact was born.

Today, as Generate Impact, we exist to empower the benevolence creators of the world through great people, frictionless processes and innovative technology.

And through the humanitarian, social impact, sustainability and for-profit-for-good organizations and causes we support, we truly believe we’re changing the world.
