The Woimpact Network is built on the success of impactmania’s Women of Impact program. Paksy Plackis-Cheng, founder impactmania and Laura Nixon Miller, founder and CEO of Redi Match are working with fellow female founders and entrepreneurs to support each other’s ventures and over time do business with each other where possible. Since funding is a critical criteria for success, it is our objective to build WOimpact to include investment capabilities to fully support women-led businesses.
impactmania conceives interdisciplinary projects focused on societal themes. We have advised and realized a number of community programs for organizations. Examples:
impactmania created a new interdisciplinary internship for AD&A Museum students. Selected interns research and formulate projects in collaboration with departments on campus and organizations off campus. The resulting multi-platform projects include original web-content, publications, exhibitions, talks, and other interactive community programs. impactmania’s first collaborative project offered the AD&A Museum a 10x return on investment; broadened the audience to include global engagement; and deepened community relationships.
