Embed Impact Economics
in Your Community 
Certifications and Licensing

Contact Us For Details

If we learn anything from 2020 it must be that we need to build communities that are more inclusive, resilient, and economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable for all residents. We cannot do this unless the work is done "In Place", hence we have chosen a scale model for Impact Economics that allows people to bring the program to their own communities. After all, the most profound Impact happens when it occurs "In Place". 

After 12-years of dedicated work and millions of dollars of expended capital, In Place Impact has proven that Impact Economics works, and thus it is not in a position to scale it across America and around the world. 

To achieve scale, we now certify passionate and purposed people to become Impact Economics Certified Consultants. Starting with an immersive week-long training program, and followed by optional weekly training and best practice sharing sessions, In Place Impact provides Impact Economics Certified consultants with a licensing agreement to embed Impact Economics within their own communities. This way, everything is done "In Place" and 95% of the benefits stay within the community (In Place Impact receives a 5% royalty on consulting fees). 

In Place Impact certifies Individuals, Teams, Foundations, and Cities, States, and Countries. All are governed by a licensing agreement that is assigned for specific "approved regions". Certified consultants receive everything they need to work with each community stakeholder embedded with an Impact Economics driven economy. This includes but is not limited to:

  • The City Impact Index

  • The Corporate Impact index

  • All class syllabuses 

  • Legal contracts and MOU's

  • Weekly ongoing training 

  • Marketing materials

Plus much more....

Find the certification program below that is most appropriate for you, then contact us to set up a virtual screen share to see how it all works. Impact Economics is the epitome of "Making A Profit While Making A Difference".
