Do-good businesses are feel-good businesses.
Combining profits and purpose makes you feel proud as a business leader and as an entrepreneur. Knowing your company makes a positive contribution to the world, not just to your bank account, gets you up in the morning. It keeps you going even when things get tough. It makes your team rally around a higher goal, giving their best to your company and your cause.
And guess what? Purpose-driven businesses are future-proof businesses.
Because consumers around the globe are turning away from profit-only companies. Investors are looking to put their money where positive change is created. Workers prefer employers who contribute to society beyond making money. And the world needs companies to join forces for a healthy, happy and prosperous future for everyone, everywhere.
The world needs you.
So… are you ready to jump in and need some help to get on track?
Or well on your way putting your purpose into practice and looking to accelerate your impact?

In case you’re wondering who is Katja Marianne Noordam, well, this is me.
I am passionate about helping purpose-driven businesses and impact entrepreneurs create positive change that lasts. This is why I founded FairChange.
Dutch-Belgian by origin and a global citizen by choice, I’ve had the opportunity to work with companies and communities in complex environments across the globe. Together, we’ve designed solutions to overcome poverty and exclusion, rebuild war-torn local markets, grow women-led social enterprises and support at-risk youth to create an income away from crime, drugs and abuse.
I’m also passionate about telling real stories about real impact. Throughout my career, I’ve helped purpose-driven businesses and social entrepreneurs communicate their engagement and results in captivating ways.
At FairChange, my mission is to share my passion and my expertise with you.
Do you think, just as I do, that your business can make a difference beyond just making profits? Then I’d love to work with you!

The businesses that really do good — like Unilever, TOMS, I like to think Virgin, and many others — their brands become stronger, people identify with them better, and therefore the business itself does better.
