The Good Growth Co.
Maximising impact with research and design
Who We Are

Our goal is to help decision makers collect and apply evidence to make better decisions and maximise their organisation's social impact.
We bring together a team across business, design and academia to deliver rigorous and actionable research. Hailing from 6 countries across 3 continents, we bring multicultural, interdisciplinary perspectives to stakeholder engagement.
Jah Ying Chung
Jah Ying's experience traverses causes, disciplines and geographies; from coordinating climate campaigns across East Asia (with 350.org), researching social movements in Oxford, to mentoring entrepreneurs in the Balkans, and building (and selling) a digital sponsorship marketplace for student NGOs across Asia. Jah Ying created Good Growth to address common bottlenecks that prevented organisations from maximising their social impact.
Focused on helping organisations succeed through innovation, Ella is an experienced project manager. She was the founding member of Swire Properties' tech and innovation team, and has designed various innovation training programmes for companies and government bodies. She also has experience in sales and operations for a coworking space and coding bootcamp.
"Few people would be as capable of identifying and executing a tractable project in a complex area as Jah Ying. She identified the unmet needs of a diverse set of stakeholders, and then translated them into a tangible project.
Based on how she engaged with key stakeholders, I believe Jah Ying is unusually strong at several communication skills: eagerness at seeking out feedback, responding to it in appropriate ways, and juggling the interests of a diverse set of stakeholders."

"Jah Ying led a talented team at Good Growth to facilitate a business transformation in our company. She helped pilot the direction of a new product line backed by solid data, as a result of earnest research effort. More importantly, Jah Ying established design thinking mindsets among our top management, creating positive impacts for the company in the long run. I’m deeply impressed by her expertise in the subject matter."
- Justin Lau, Scrum Master, Insight Robotics
"We needed to test out the market in Hong Kong, and Good Growth understood both our mission - effective altruism - and the context we needed to operate in, the Hong Kong startup scene.
Jah Ying is diligent, efficient and a strong leader. Good Growth opened up their network to us, and helped realise our launch night.
If you're a small, lean, and results-focused orgs like us, give the team a try."
- Ben Clifford, Community Director at Founders Pledge
