Impactor

A free community workshop series for accelerating positive change

We design and facilitate immersive workshops around the world for non-profit organizations. In a matter of hours, we surface actionable ideas and solutions to their most pressing challenges.

Ideas. People.
A space to connect.

We’re a network of strategists, entrepreneurs, designers, technologists, neurosurgeons, marketers, teachers, students, and other specialists bound together by a desire for change. Together, we roll up our sleeves and help non-profits to turn good ideas into action.

Founded by Jason Briscoe, Richard Demato and Alex Abelin in partnership with Google New York. We’ve since partnered with the Centre For Social Innovation, NYU-Stern and the Harvard Innovation Lab, surfacing actionable solutions for Girls Who Code, The Future Project, Mama Hope and MBAxAmerica. Impactor has been hosted in New York, San Francisco, Boston, London and Toronto.

Come along, participate, sponsor an event, be featured or say hello. We’d love to hear from you.
