​We believe that profound social impact is contingent on leveraging four cohesive strategies: data science, community engagement, innovative finance, and impact storytelling.

The Sorenson Impact Methodology™ uniquely positions us to empower social entrepreneurs and organizations to measure, articulate, and expand their impact.

Initiative Building.

Building a movement takes vision, passion, and grit. We bring all of those to bear in our partnerships, as well as data based strategies and community voices. We’ve worked with foundations to catalyze initiatives and execute them from inspiration to impact.

Impact Instruction.

It can be difficult knowing where to begin measuring and communicating your impact as  a company, nonprofit, or individual. We develop tailored educational experiences to help our partners define their theory of change and quantify impact through data science, story-telling, and strategic thinking.
