Welcome everyone to the new ThinkImpact website and blog!
We are really excited to present a new platform to learn about ThinkImpact’s work, the state of our portfolio of businesses, and all opportunities to partner with ThinkImpact. We've attempted to produce a site that was clean and simple: easy to follow and navigate. Like many of our innovations, we wanted to reflect the elements shown in a human-centered design tool: intuitive to understand and use.
As you explore the website, please take a moment to check out our Portfolio section, which highlights the hard work of our entrepreneurs: students, innovators and community organizers. In this section, both ongoing enterprises and those that have seen market failure, loss of participation or another reason for their discontinuation. We believe, strongly, that it’s just as important to focus on our lessons learned from failure, as those from success.
If you’re a student interested in ThinkImpact, check out the students page and get in touch with us about how we can get you innovating soon.
If you work at a university, faculty or administrator, be sure to fill out the Faculty Inquiry form so that we can understand more about your work, and put you in touch with our team to help you learn more.
If you represent a company or organization looking to understand rural developing markets, seeking to build asset-based human-centered design skills or leadership training, you can find information under our company tab.
And if you’re an alumni of ThinkImpact, please reach out to us @ firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional information about your experience so that we can best reflect it on the website and you can use it as a tool to show the impacts that you’ve made.
This platform was the work of our whole team, with particular contributions from Emily Garlick, Ilana Mandel, Saul Garlick and Raissa Arguelles. Enjoy the website, explore and come back frequently: there will always be new information!
Thank You & Think Impact,
Steve & Team
