We believe that having a positive impact on people and on the planet changes everything about your business.
The Changemaker Institute provides curriculum, training, social impact program design, and content to socially conscious businesses to position them as market leaders, increase their impact, and develop their role as changemakers to create a positive impact in our world.
"Is your business positioned to create a positive impact to benefit society and the planet?"
People and the planet are an integral part of your business success
not just statistics on a page, dollars in the bank, or vanity numbers on social media.
Let's stop trading the well-being of people and the planet for profits and choose the path towards more purpose-filled businesses that are sustainable and profitable because of their commitment to building a better world.
Because in today's stakeholder economy, whether you orient your business with the interests of your stakeholders - customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, local communities, and the environment - or not can mean the difference between a thriving successful business or a faltering diminishing enterprise.
It's time to be excited about the multitude of doors that will open up for you as you become a leader in your community, gain the freedom and financial security to do all the things in life you've always wanted to do, and secure your position in the market ... all with a well-mapped out plan and strategy to actually get all of this done.
We work with businesses like yours so you can make the most profound impact on people and the planet while growing more sustainable and profitable as a market leader.
A commitment to excellence. A passion for sustainability. A space for meaningful engagement.
We believe that impact-led growth creates the most sustainable and profitable companies. We use time-tested tools that will allow you to reimagine your business's potential and guide you toward the outcome.
Sustainability & Profitability
All our programs are designed to ensure your business grows as a sustainable and profitable company. We are committed to making sure that our programs impact people and the planet positively.
Our carefully designed programs combine user desirability, technical feasibility, and economic viability with your own vision for systemic change to create a social impact program that supports your business's growth strategies.
Our impact goal is to develop quality, reliable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure that supports economic development and human well-being. We want to make these infrastructures more affordable and equitable for all. To achieve our goal, we choose to empower our students and clients to be successful social entrepreneurs that create, build, and launch successful social impact businesses.
Today, as more and more entrepreneurs and business owners become aware of the importance of being socially responsible and having a social impact mission in their business model, many also struggle to plan, design, and implement social impact programs.
We are dedicated to showing socially conscious entrepreneurs and business owners a straightforward, simple, and effective, way to build a business that addresses social and environmental problems in innovative and creative ways. We rely on data, research in science and the social sciences, and innovation to show you how to change systems to create a more equitable, inclusive, and resilient world.
