Aspen Impact provides personal attention and deep expertise. We collaborate with each client by developing agendas and completing activities together. In this way, the members of a client’s team take ownership of ideas and solutions that emerge, and develop skills and perspectives alongside us.
Our core team of Bryan and Anna is based in Indiana. Advisory team members participate in projects as needed, bringing design and strategy capabilities, plus local and global perspectives. Our modest size makes us readily accessible to our clients and to each other, so we can operate efficiently and proactively.
Each year we work together with approximately eight to twelve clients, including a mixture of businesses, social impact nonprofits, universities, and philanthropic foundations. We are grateful to have served the dedicated leaders and staff of several hundred enterprises worldwide since our founding in 2003.
Aspen Impact also partners with businesses, philanthropic foundations, universities, consulting firms, and creative agencies. In Indiana, we are an approved vendor for Indiana University, a state-certified professional fundraising advisor to nonprofit organizations, and a consultant on behalf the Indiana Youth Institute. Globally, we are active in social enterprise and microfinance alliances, the Design Management Institute, the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX), and the Mandela-Washington Fellowship program.
We host internships in strategy, narrative and visual communications, and design innovation. We welcome inquiries from energetic, talented, and civically minded college and graduate students. Internships are usually during summer breaks, but academic-year openings may be possible for Indianapolis-area students. We are grateful for our friendly and talented internship alumni!
