Our Leadership
Fleur Heyns
Co-founder
Fleur, a powerhouse entrepreneur, began her career in finance as an investment banking analyst at JP Morgan in Johannesburg and London. At 23 years of age, she built an innovative financial intermediary for emerging markets, selling the business after successfully launching in six countries. As co-founder of Proof of Impact, Fleur actively engages in transforming the value of impact and traditional impact investing models. She is inspired by the teachings of Vedanta by A. Parthasarathy, a world-renowned philosopher who teaches to serve a broader group of people beyond yourself.
Iulian Circo
Co-founder
Iulian, a serial impact entrepreneur, has led unique operations in some of the world’s most challenging environments. Having been at the center of initiatives that turned traditional non-profit platforms into industry-leading innovators, he uses exponential technology to achieve impact at scale. Iulian has founded several tech start-ups while unlocking entirely new categories of impact financing. By co-founding Proof of Impact, he hopes to achieve greater good being delivered by realizing a higher efficiency in capital being deployed. When Iulian isn't taking the impact world by storm, there's a significant chance he's chasing powder on the slopes or mountainbiking in the forests of Austria.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
What are the SDGs?
Seventeen ambitious objectives for a greener, healthier, more peaceful, and equal planet. Here's what you need to know:

Born at the 2012 Rio+20 Summit in Brazil, the universal goals set to tackle poverty, ill health, inequality and environmental degradation. 

It took 3 years to design the goals and targets, with more than seven million people voting via 84 national surveys. 

In September 2015, all 193 countries agreed and signed the SDGs, commitmentting to achieving them by 2030. You can find the agreement on the UN’s website. 
How can you help?
Between now and 2030, there is a tremendous amount of work to do. Achieving the SDGs will need monumental action - from governments, civil society, communities, and corporations. What are you waiting for?
