ImpactEd connects students with real-world project experiences for leading organizations.  

We connect college classrooms with real-world projects. Below are some of the challenges that students are solving today through collaboration with some of the world's top companies, government agencies, and nonprofits.  

Growing healthy
food at scale.
Commercializing space technology to move humanity forward.
Driving sustainable consumption through
retail innovation.
ImpactEd projects are being taught by educators at pioneering universities. 
Our approach is focused on enabling educators, students, and partners to find success. 

Before developing ImpactEd, we spent two years meeting with educators, students, and real-world organizations across six continents. In the process, we learned about the needs of higher education and the workforce. This ultimately led us to design a system that enables universities to bring their existing learning practices into the 21st century.

(Still true)
ImpactEd was started by a college student who imagined a better way 
to learn by doing in the 21st century. 

When Austin was a junior in college, he felt a disconnect between his learning in the classroom and his success in the real-world. This story is not unique. There are 100 million university students around the world who spend four years studying going through theoretical learning exercises, while facing uncertainty about their ability to solve problems in their field of study.


ImpactEd makes it easy for educators to modernize their classrooms, and connects students with the learning experiences they need to find early career success. As a team of recent college grads and industry experts, we have designed ImpactEd as a way to empower students to become competent professionals and conscious citizens. Our method demonstrates a 22% increase in student engagement compared with a standard course, as evidenced in a study conducted with University of Gothenburg. 

 Empowering the leaders of tomorrow to solve the challenges of today.
