Founder & CEO of i=Change

While the challenges feel overwhelming, we can be the change.

Jeremy Meltzer is Founder & CEO of i=Change, Australia's fastest-growing social impact start-up that bridges worlds between online businesses and NGOs.

In partnership with over 400 brands like Camilla, Pillow Talk and Clarins, from an idea 8 years ago, i=Change now works with Australia’s largest retailers and NGOs, has already raised over $7 million, $1 at a time, impacting the lives of up to 1.5 million people in Australia and globally.

i=Change is a certified B-Corp, has won two Australia Post ORIAs and was voted one of 50 most innovative start-ups in Australia.

In his early 20’s, Jeremy lived in Havana, Cuba, where he saw significant violence against women. He felt helpless to impact such a complex issue, yet knew he had to try.

Jeremy imagined… what if the power of our purchases could create a new and sustainable funding stream for best-practice NGOs, by making it simple for businesses to accelerate their sustainability journey by giving back to people and planet?

9 out of 10 Australians now want to shop brands with a clear purpose beyond product. For businesses, giving back in this fragile time - driven by consumers - is emerging as a powerful driver of growth, and helping brands grow.

With a focus on empowering women & girls and now also mitigating climate change, i=Change is leading a purpose-driven business movement, helping businesses meet consumer’s expectations to back brands committed to building a better world.

Jeremy has given a TED Talk on ending violence against women, and been featured in VOGUE and SKY News. i=Change has won numerous social impact awards, including two Australia Post ORIAs (the Online Retail Industry Awards), Lift Off’s ‘Star of Social Impact’ and Finder Award’s ‘Best Shopping Innovation’.

Talking Points

Jeremy speaks on sustainability, the purpose-led consumer and the unique data highlighting why impact-led business will become the only relevant model of business. He is passionate about bridging worlds between the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, and the largely untapped opportunity this represents to powerfully connect consumers to brands, while funding best practice NGOs with deep expertise in creating social and environment change.

A powerful talk that deeply inspired, and has given our business even greater purpose. As an important message that’s enormously relevant, Jeremy distilled a global movement into an exciting and simple way forward, urging us to remember our ‘why’, while understanding the business case and how giving back meets the emotional expectations of customers today.


A genuinely charismatic speaker on a subject increasingly important to businesses, their customers and staff. Jeremy is one of the very few able to connect the dots and inspire audiences to understand the business rationale for having a clear 'purpose beyond profit', and explain this fast-growing global movement and the opportunity.

His innovative business model to create social change through corporate ‘giving’, helps my team understand the benefits and impact our customers could have on extremely worthwhile causes around the world.

Jeremy is one of the most inspiring speakers I’ve encountered. He speaks with great passion as he motivates organisations to unite in using the power of business to support women and children around the world. His engaging and charismatic style has the power to motivate and influence, making him the perfect ambassador for real and lasting change. I hope Jeremy’s work encourages more men to lead with such conviction, compassion and care.
