The IMPACTJUNKIE Framework course has been designed as a required master's level course at Johns Hopkins university and being used as training material for U.S. State Department. There are requests to use this course in universities in United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, and other leading universities around the world.
We can't wait to try this course with you before its big launch in 2020.
You will get first access to these sessions to help you move from idea to action with tools in problem-solving and innovation. First sessions are available November 1st as a thank you to our long-standing members.
We need your help to test this course online and get feedback before it launches on a global scale.
"Thank you for making our programs a part of your work, and allowing us to observe the changes you make in people’s lives."
"These sessions helped me to expand my vision and fine-tune my business model. They ask the hard questions and provide resources that help broaden and enhance my skills to create a successful business."
"We aimed to introduce students to ways they can evaluate the real-world problems, especially those in the healthcare space, and consider how they could create sustainable and effective solutions. The biggest part was to equip our students to take practical action in their roles now and eventually in their positions as physicians."
"People would had paid thousands of dollars to hear what I heard today. So thank you for coming to our community to help those who need it the most -- our local businesses. "
"I’m not chasing money, I’m chasing excellence. I went from an idea to now hiring three full-time employees since our impact reach grew."
Learn and grow together with proven problem solvers, and innovators. Plus, leverage our relationships with universities like Harvard, Johns Hopkins and opportunities with the State Department and international leaders.
