Social Impact

Welcome to Social Impact

Greater Boston is where you surround yourself with the best and brightest in defining progress in our time. Simply put, we believe our home - the Athens of America - is a global city because our trademark export has been the breakthrough solutions to the problems too often described as intractable and overwhelming. It is our goal to ensure this tradition continues and where everyone is equipped with the resources to contribute - small or big - to the bold ideas necessary to solve the social issues we deem frustratingly inexcusable in modern society.
