Unique programs for change-makers committed to thriving together with their teams

Unleash what is possible for your vision & team

10X Impact is where personal & professional growth meet & make a beautiful, sustainable baby. The impactful beginnings of your startup will form an epic next chapter of sustainable growth. By focusing on team leadership and organizational development, you will build a rock solid foundation for your startup, so that your cause and team will thrive.

From Vision To Reality

You will discover how to turn the vision you have for the impact of your startup into a tangible reality. This is your starter-step for healthy, sustainable growth.

Self Sustainability

Mental health & wellbeing don’t stop with your offer and your startup’s operations. Excelling in changing the world for the better needs you and your team to become and stay both physically and mentally healthy and thereby sustainable.

High-Performance as a Team Sport

You will unleash the power of your startup by creating a culture of 100% responsibility and candor, creating a rich soil for healthy growth.

Built-In Circularity

We support you in actually making your business and impact model circular and contribute to being part of the solution instead of watching from the side-line.

Pulling the Room

You will discover how to mobilize people to join you in your efforts – especially when the headwinds are strong.

Clarity in Leadership

You will discover what you are truly taking a stand for and why people will follow you. This provides clarity in two often overlooked areas: what you are not standing for and what you will have to give up.

Powerfully achieve your commitment to impact the world for the better.

With 10X Impact’s unique programs for Impact Startups

The core of it all: Our principles

But wait! Aren’t there many programs for impact startups?

Yes! A ton, actually.

So why bother checking ours out?

Because – believe it or not – ours are different. #Promise

What you will get in our programs is a strong focus on developing your inner skills for your startup’s growth. We believe that there is more to growing your impact and reach than just discovering systems and techniques. Instead, we combine the inner work and the outer skills so that you can fulfill your vision and (self-)leadership in a healthy, professional and sustainable way.

You, your team and startup will transform within a 10X Impact program. Be ready for the growth in the years to come.

An Exemplary Timeline

6-weeks for a Sprint-like transformation

Kick Off

Start Event

During the „Start Event“ days we’ll create the emotional safe space you need to show up and grow your inner skills. You’ll discover what’s stopping you so far and what you and your team need to get unstuck. Your 10X Impact goals will be defined. This includes your game plan and structures for fulfillment to reach your finish line. Lastly, you’ll meet your coach.

Group Coaching Circles

In our regularly embedded half-day group coaching, we focus on interpersonal and team dynamics, conflict resolution, and effective communication – especially in periods of high intensity as experienced in times of startup growth. Doing so, you discover e.g. how to be an accountable leader and create a regenerative team-culture.

Continuous Individual Coaching

Next to our regular group coaching circles, you’ll experience bi-weekly individual coaching sessions. We help you dig deeper to troubleshoot, gain clarity, and make progress. Doing so, you are well on your way to meet your declared impact goals and your inner skills for better (self-)leadership.

Thematic Workshops

Some of our expert-partners will inspire you too, providing you with on-top workshops addressing outside-curriculum topics like system innovation, circularity or impact measurement in times of a startup’s growth.

Completion Event

During our „Completion Event“ day we will wrap up your 6-week Sprint-experience by discovering a new way of performance (and its pay-off) to continue moving forward. You’ll also train your muscles to learn celebrate yourself, an inner skill which is belittled, increasing stress-levels.

6-weeks of Impact: We did it!

Impact Review Call

We are curious to see how inner skills have grown and impact goals have inspired next steps. Hence, 3-months after the „6-Week 10X Impact Sprint“ we’ll run a personal call. We review and assess your created impact and remaining challenges. All to support you to gain more clarity for what truly matters, navigating yourself, your team and startup through growth.

A proposal to you

Typically, startups have to show their interest for developmental programs. And … that is true for this one too … but!
Let’s level the playing field here. We will now propose to you. Let’s start with the essential question:


Why do we care?

Eva Gruber

Mental Health & Habit Coach, Consultant, Speaker

„It’s about time to coach passionate ventures into growth, instead of seeing change-makers burn and feel as a failure too many times! Coaching makes sure we can support each of you in your true needs and in an emotional safe space.“  


Eva Gruber is a Habit Coach, Mental Fitness Expert and Trainer, Speaker, and International Best-Seller Author. She supports entrepreneurs, managers, and teams who “have too much on their plate” to improve their wellbeing, relationships, and peak-performance. How? Through unmasking their mental self-sabotage and establishing good habits.

As only 1 out of 5 people use their (mental) potential, and 6+ hours of your day are based on often times unconscious habits, this is a game-changer! By training 3 brain muscles and good habits, you establish your mental fitness (positive intelligence) and supportive behavior. Doing so, you feel happier and better in your body. You live healthier relationships with your team, clients, and family. You improve peak-performance especially when e.g. feeling stressed, angry, or insecure.

Eva Gruber founded 2 ventures, and supported hundreds of challenged people. She is trained by and collaborates with leading researchers and experts, like Professor BJ Fogg PhD (Stanford University) or neuroscientist Shirzad Chamine (Positive Intelligence). She has been featured as a speaker at events like TEDx and podcasts, as an author, and an executive contributor for the Brainz magazine. She lives in Vienna/Austria with her French fiance, her yoga mat, and an adventurer’s mind. Connect on LinkedIn

What clients say about us

Past & Current Partners


Who is 10X Impact?

As your social venture or organization is up and running for a while, it might appear to you that it’s about time to grow your impact to support sustainable social change. Our planet and society can’t wait another 10 years to make the turnaround happen, right? Within the 10X Impact team we share and live this vision of a sustainable economy and social change. That’s why we – 3 social entrepreneurs and/or coaches – join forces with change-makers and startups who wish to grow beyond what seemed possible in its beginnings. How? Within the “10X Impact Programs” we support decision-makers from social ventures or organizations to go from overwhelm and restlessness in times of growth to clarity and power. Why? In order to grow 10X your impact, create healthy, effective leadership and teams, and invest into one’s diminished personal wellbeing in times of growth. How? By coaching 10X Impact participants specifically in organizational development, team-leadership and personal wellbeing skills needed at growth-stage within the “10X Impact Programs”.

What does “impact” mean to us?

As social change-makers ourselves, we started and grew our ventures to enable social change in our economy and society, as well as a healthier environment. We built or supported ventures from e.g. playful education to smart money use, package-free retail to green energy. Did we start our ventures for profit only? No! Did we grow our ventures to scale our impact? Yes! Impact stands for any positive but sustainable change for the wellbeing, health, relationships or performance of our target audience or market. To do so, we are using sustainable resources with care, making sure we create lasting, proven change in a dedicated, skilled team of change-makers.

What are your benefits as a participant?

As a participant in our „10X Impact Programs“ you go on a journey from feeling overwhelmed and restless in times of growth to experiencing clarity and power in the end. As a decision-maker of your venture/organization, you build your skills muscles – as you would grow your physical muscles – to become knowledgeable and mentally fit to face and master your challenges during growth. At 10X Impact we focus on increasing your capacity to leverage transformational change – by taking a stand for what truly matters for you and your venture/organization. Doing so, your personal development meets the needed organizational development and intended social change. How? With the help of individual coaching and group coaching, workshops and retreats with peer-participants, you grow your skills in organizational development, team-leadership and personal wellbeing. During the “10X Impact Programs”, our expert-coaches guide you step-by-step and week-by-week, creating your safe space to grow your impact 10X.

What is a participant's ideal profile?

Participants are decision-makers in a social or circular/sustainable/environmental venture or organization that is in its growth stage (which means it’s day one of their growth or they are already some time into it). 

  • They need to be truly motivated to join a 10X Impact program. But please don’t only count on your motivation and willpower, as that would set you up to fail and drop out of a program shortly! Instead focus on your determination to personally grow  and enable your venture’s/organization’s growth, crafting the necessary changes on the way. 
  • They need to be able to join a 10X Impact program in regards to time, energy, and other capacities like focus. 
  • They need to not only make the time to join the coachings and group-events, but also create time to reflect on, test or implement their learnings on a day-to-day basis. 
  • They also need to be eager to represent their teams and challenges, and commit to bring back and integrate learnings within their venture or organization. 
  • Consequently, our ideal participants are skilled in enrolling others in change efforts and/or have the intention to learn how to do so. 
  • Participants might also need to be able to join in-person events happening in Vienna/Austria.

If you are doubtful about meeting this profile, message us here.

Which selection criteria do we apply?

We welcome any participants that fit the “participant’s ideal profile”. Please see the respective Q&A above. If you are doubtful about meeting this profile, message us here.

Are competitors also taking part in a program?

Firstly, we are committed to open and honest conversations during a 10X Impact program. Why? All participants agree to keep confidential anything shared by the other participants during a program. Secondly, a social economy needs collaboration to grow in a wise, innovative and healthy way. When it comes to your competition, the growth you envision and wish to put into action might not be the growth your competitors aim for. Moreover, our experience within the social impact sector as founders and entrepreneurs ourselves proves that classic business cultures are less applied within social ventures or organizations. Why? We strive to nourish the mentioned open mind, learn from peers and role-models, hence also from our competitors. Maybe there is even potential to collaborate as recommended, growing a shared impact more than 10X times! Saying that, we at 10X Impact aim to host and support all decision-makers that feel called by our offer to grow their social impact. If you feel uncomfortable due to your specific business or impact model, message us your concerns here.
