The Impact Builder wants to impact a specific issue or group and believes building a business (for profit or non profit) is the most sustainable way to drive that change. They’re not really in it for the ‘sport’ or goal of building a company but, instead, look at that process as a means to an end. Impact Builders want scale, profitability, etc. — primarily because it enables them to impact more people.
Alok is absolutely right that Impact Builders are incredibly important and make a huge difference in our society. Many entrepreneurs are Impact Builders and use their gifts and talents to help other people. The next time you think of Empire Builders and Lifestyle Builders, think of Impact Builders as well.
