Testimonials

There is a big fear factor that comes into play when I think about leaving a stable job at a well-established and highly regarded company to venture out in pursuit of my passion. But I think that with that risk come significant rewards in terms of experience and my own personal goals—and specifically at Inspiring Capital, not only because the mission is one that I truly believe in for the future of this world, but also because I trust [the team’s] ability to lead the way.
— Undergrad intern, 2014
I love working for Inspiring Capital because I’ve witnessed how much potential there is for philanthropies to have an impact, but often these organizations don’t have the skills or resources to maximize their potential, which is where IC comes in.
— Undergrad intern, 2014

[I got] a lot greater bandwidth of knowledge than I expected. As well as more chances to negotiate work territory on my own. I learned a ton about the huge variety of options – far from narrowing down my focus this actually opened up a whole host of new options (which is great).
— SESTI Participant, 2015
I cannot begin to describe how amazing my internship this summer has been for both my professional and self-development. Especially as I begin looking for opportunities after graduation, I am frequently disappointed that so many organizations lack IC’s flair, integrity, and authenticity. [IC] truly spoiled me. Anything I can do for your recruiting/outreach efforts at Tuck or Dartmouth, please let me know! I’d love to help in anyway I can.
