I found a greater sense of purpose this summer because of the Inspiring Capital experience. I learned so much from my cohort mates and from the weekly seminars. Inspiring Capital helped to really clarify not only my why, but how to actualize it.

The program challenges you to be open and honest. If you are looking to infuse what you want to do with purpose, IC provides the perfect opportunity to experiment and explore that opportunity.
