What If You Could Translate Your Vision for a Better World Into Reality Faster & With Less Effort?

Imagine opening your mailbox to an email with updates from your partner. While you were concentrating on something else - or even sleeping if your partner is based halfway around the world - the new services page on your website is finalized, the first wave of promotion for your upcoming event is published, and action steps to reach your next big milestone are outlined and ready for your input.

Thrilled to see tangible progress towards your goals, you can’t wait to get started on your tasks for the day and keep building on this momentum. You know exactly what your main priorities are, and you are confident that step-by-step you will quickly accomplish your impact goals.

You don’t feel alone. But that’s not the only reason why you feel so great about this new partnership. You feel amazing because you are working with someone who shares the same impact goals as you. Someone who is equally invested in creating the change you envision. Someone who brings a different perspective to the table, so you can build something better together than either of you could imagine on your own.

We built a partnership like this.
We know you can wake up to mornings like these too, so we gathered all our learning in a book! This book is tailor-made to inspire, encourage and guide Impact-driven Entrepreneurs like yourself to harness the power of collaboration & grow your impact more effectively.

Why We Wrote This Book

WHEN YOU APPROACH COLLABORATION STRATEGICALLY, IT WORKS. And you achieve greater impact, faster.

Collaboration is an idea you care about, and value. You know it’s important, and you know it’s something you should be doing.

But (until now!) your partnerships and collaborative work was probably haphazard and left up to chance. When an opportunity came up you probably jumped into it because, well, why not? Maybe you got started too quickly, and realized later the work was going in a direction that didn't serve you. Maybe you agreed to work with someone when it wasn't quite the right fit.

The project most likely ended in frustration, ended up being completely ineffective, or was generally a waste of everyone’s time...

But when you approach collaboration WITH A PLAN it can be different:

  • You find the right partners.
  • Your entrepreneurial journey feels easier, and a lot more fun!
  • And best of all, the results - and impact - you’re able to achieve are far greater than you could have imagined!

A Book to Change How Changemakers Collaborate

Supporting aspiring and current social entrepreneurs across the world, we learned that changemakers like you value the practice of collaboration and partnerships.

You appreciate the work other impact entrepreneurs are doing; you want to cheer them on and be a sounding board to celebrate wins and troubleshoot challenges. You are happy to share ideas about what’s working or what’s not working in your own work.

But when it comes right down to it... There is a lot of talk of collaboration, and not much action. Conversations between potential collaborators are full of sky-high ideas and lofty visions. Lots of ‘we should work together’ without many next steps.

Concrete examples of partnerships that are working are few and far between. Discussions in the community pays lip service to the importance of collaboration, but back of the room talk revealed people were jaded, dissatisfied and plain tired of trying to collaborate because it never quite seemed worth it...

It's time to change all this, and start using collaboration efficiently to take your impact to the next level !

Written by impact entrepreneurs for fellow changemakers, Meeting of the Minds gathers resources, best practices, case studies, and outlines THE roadmap for you to drive your impact forward with the help of collaborations!
