#20: How to launch an independent social impact consulting business in 5 steps



Hello and welcome to a special episode of the Impact Consulting Podcast with Loksan and Molly from the Impact Consulting Hub.


Today, we walk you through the steps required to launch an independent consulting business in the international development or social impact spaces.


What we discuss

  • What an independent social impact professional is.

  • How we launched Molly's independent consulting business (focused on NGO fundraising) two years ago.

  • Molly's challenges in identifying areas to specialise in and services to provide.

  • The IC-Hub 5-Step Start-up Framework.



The IC-Hub 5-Step Start-up Framework

  • Step 1: Identify your services

  • Step 2: Establish your runway

  • Step 3: Launch and test your Minimum Viable Product/Service and get your first client

  • Step 4: Sort out the legals (banking, legal status, taxation, insurance, contracting, invoicing)

  • Step 5: Iterate, improve, and level-up

We go through the five steps quite briefly. For those who are serious about launching their independent consulting career very soon, we also provide a premium IC-Hub Start-up Workshop. The live workshop will take place on 24 November 2021. We will then adapt it into a self-guided workshop.
