Dreaming big so everyone can.
Together, we are cross-sector practitioners, educators, researchers, advocates, community leaders and other trailblazers who favor big ideas that challenge conventional thinking. From hunger and homelessness to lack of economic opportunity, we are tackling our communities' toughest problems because we envision an America where everyone thrives.
Innovators-in-Residence devote one or two semesters to starting and growing a new nonprofit, for-profit or hybrid organization with a social mission alongside The Impact Factory's team. Meet our current innovators and alumni.
