POPUP THINK TANK™

 

 

FACILITATE ENGAGING AND IMPACTFUL EXPERIENCES FOR MISSIONAL FOUNDERS AND LEADERS IN YOUR COMMUNITY

 
 
 

We aren't consultants. We are Champions.

We champion the causes, projects, and ideas of founders and entrepreneurs who are launching new projects and organizations. They want to make an impact. We want to help. Our member facilitators are trained to host and facilitate Popup Think Tank events for partners of their choosing. They are not financially compensated for this work.

Who are our member facilitators?

Our members are outrageously generous. They believe in the power of building bridges and the significance of relationships. They are curious, energetic, thoughtful, smart, and collaborative individuals and teams who serve founders and social entrepreneurs, non-profits and small businesses. Our goal is to make their membership experience enjoyable, powerful, effective, and meaningful because we believe this translates into how they host, facilitate, and represent Popup Think Tank.

A new and generous act of service

Our facilitators are not compensated for facilitating Popup Think Tank. Each event is a generous and relational act of service for one founder or leader who is working to make a difference. We work hard to celebrate, support, and honor the amazing individuals and teams who have chosen to be a member of our facilitator network.
