About Cultivate International


The world has enough charity. What we need is empowerment.”

Elaine Tymchak, Founder

Cultivate focuses on the assets, potential, and social capital of communities rather than their needs or disparities. Because they believe that community insiders are the best people to lead change, they invest into building their capacity as leaders. 



Meet Your Facilitator


Tim Schuster believes every founder deserves the opportunity to build a community of brand ambassadors around their project. As a Strategic Development Consultant at Thrivent Financial, a not-for-profit company with a mission to help people be wise and generous, he works on teams that test and launch new products, businesses, and partnerships. He lives in North Minneapolis with his partner, Kelsey, and their daughter, Joslyn.

What happens at Popup Think Tank?


Step 1: Interview the founder

We'll take a few minutes to interview Cultivate founder, Elaine Tymchak.
We'll learn about the mission, vision, challenges, and opportunities.  

Step 2: Contribute your ideas, wisdom, and connections

Good ideas are deep inside of each of us. All are welcome to participate, and many are surprised how many ideas they have to offer once we get started!

Step 3: Celebrate the mission!

After the event we'll put the ideas in an eBook for the team at Cultivate. As much as this event is about generating new ideas, it's also about celebrating those who are making a difference. Register today to see this process in action - and join in the creation of something our world needs. 



Building communities around difference makers

Popup Think Tank is a platform that connects social entrepreneurs and non-profit founders with trained facilitators so together they can host smart, bold, energetic, and fun events that build communities around projects that make a difference.
