Impact cube

about us

We build and support social founding teams

Our mission is to generate social impact by supporting impact entrepreneurs

Impact Cube is an organisation that started as a student society at Oxford University with a passion to see global change through supporting social entrepreneurship – formerly known as Oxford Social Entrepreneurs (OSE) founded in 2018.

We have seen that interdisciplinary and international teams are uniquely positioned to succeed. We have also demonstrated how the Impact Cube programme has the potency to push them forward.

We are now working to continue to run our Impact Cube programme for social start-ups in Oxford, but with a new ambition to share it with students at Universities across the world. Imagine what we can achieve together by joining impact-centred students, advisors, and networks from all over the world?
