CEO , Makerble
Matt Kepple is Chief Executive of Makerble.com, the impact management platform for national charities such as The Trussell Trust and local powerhouses like Sport4Life who use it to run their programmes and report their impact. As a Social Enterprise Ambassador appointed by The Cabinet Office, Matt inspired young people to change the world in their own way. To promote philanthropy among young people, Matt co-founded the Youth Funding Network which ran in-person crowdfunding events for fledgling charities. To encourage social entrepreneurship, Matt co-founded and chaired The Commission for Youth Social Enterprise whose recommendations led to increased funding for the sector.
Matt's ideas have received awards and recognition from Channel4, The RSA, Microsoft and Deloitte. He began his career as an advertising executive in the creative agency DLKW before moving into market research at FreshMinds and into government strategy at The COI. Matt believes that ideas can come from anywhere and has facilitated innovation processes which empower teams to tap into their inner creativity and spot actionable insights in their data. He is currently recording a podcast series on social innovation and is looking for guests to interview. His TEDx Talk, Our Dreams Were Made For Sharing, given at The University of Cambridge, is an invitation to make social responsibility a way of life; which is precisely what he loves about the charity sector.
