Who we are

The Vision

ella impact  was founded by Julia Profeta Johansson as a result of a passion for the theme of impact investing and gender empowerment. Julia  deeply believes that women are the driving force of the changes we need to see in the world, to create the future where we want to live in.

Women have to be at the table when it comes to investment and business decisions and are the natural carriers of the impact principles.
