Social Impact - Cogent

PRODUCTS FOR PURPOSE

We work with social impact startups to create life changing products.

Helping you create a better tomorrow, today.

You’re probably here because you’re looking for great people to help build your product. We do that, and a whole lot more.

Whether you’re a startup founder or part of a bigger team trying to shake things up, we can help get your idea off the ground and grow it into a successful digital product that your users love.

Let’s get started.

Be part of the process

There are currently more than 3,500 social enterprises across Victoria, contributing $5.2 billion to the economy and helping to change lives.

Chances are you’ve got an amazing wealth of knowledge to bring to the table, you’re the subject matter expert, but perhaps need some help with the technical side of building a digital product. That’s exactly where we can help.

We’re with you every step of the way. From clarifying your idea, to getting your product built, to using an MVP to raise funds – we can take you through the whole process and help you build something that makes a real difference. 

Who we've worked with

Products for Purpose Events

Join us at Products for Purpose, a feel-good breakfast series hosted by Cogent. On the first Thursday each month, we’ll be speaking to people making some of the most interesting digital products with a focus on social or environmental impact.

Our next free event is at 8am on Thurs 5 Dec and we’ll be joined by Marty Andrews, Co-Founder and CEO of Chargefox, Australia’s first and largest ultra-rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging network, completely powered by renewable energy.
