TDi enables others to do good and make money at the same time.  They work with change makers to develop investment-ready enterprises that create positive social or environmental impact and are financially sustainable.

TDi was inspired by donkey wheel’s Two Feet program, run in 2010, and the need to create more opportunities in Australia for impact investing.  With donkey wheel and The Myer Foundation as its initial funders, TDi is now a successful organisation that has worked with hundreds of enterprises.

TDi also offers consulting sessions, business model workshops, and other programs for mission-driven organisations.

We believe that space can change the world. 

Sharing space and resources with organisations and people who have a similar ethos means that we can not only do more with less, we can share ideas and experience.

Ethical Property Australia raise social impact investment to purchase and refurbish properties, delivering a solid financial, social and environmental return.

Bringing together tenants with common goals allows them to offer shared resources such as meeting and conference rooms, IT infrastructure and back office services, and it creates vibrant communities and opportunities for partnerships and joint projects.

Ethical Property Australia was born out of conversations between donkey wheel and Ethical Property UK.  After purchasing donkey wheel house, we realised the importance of having a specialised property management organisation to handle both the complexities and opportunities a community of mission-driven organisations creates.
