Paul Wallace

Paul’s work is focused on helping and supporting social enterprises to be highly successful commercially in order that they can maximise their social impact. He is the founder of SME business support experts Zonata, a business he ran until August 2016 before starting their pro bono Social Impact Division, which he now heads. Paul has a track record of significant achievement both with his own businesses and with those of his clients. He founded his own software company at the age of 29, which became a major UK player with distributors in six other countries, before a significant trade exit 12 years later. Today, he uses his wide experience of sound business practice to work closely with social entrepreneurs as they build and scale their businesses. His style is both strategic and hands on, more interested in the practical reality of business than theoretical niceties, and focusing on achieving real business results that make a major positive impact on his clients’ ability to further their social purpose.
