About HyLo

Keeping the Local in Hyper Local

What if you didn't have to leave your hometown to make an impact on the world?

Hyper Local Impact believes that we have what we need, right now, where we are, to influence the world around us for the better.

We are a consulting firm focused on empowering business leaders, nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, and investors to get their resources under control so that we can combine our energy to make wherever we already are the best place it can be.

We are proudly based out of Fort Wayne, IN but our solutions and products apply anywhere there are people who love where they live.


David Buuck, CASS Housing

"Kristin introduced our team at CASS Housing to Impact Investing in May 2019. By the end of the year, we figured out how all the pieces fit together for our organization. Within 1 week, we had secured nearly $400k in 0% funding. None of this would have possible without the guidance Kristin offered along the way. Impact Investing has revolutionized how we operate as a non-profit organization, and there’s no better leader in the field than Kristin Giant."
