Meet Impact 2

Civic ArtWorks – Civic ArtWorks makes community planning and design more accessible by helping the public suggest and react to new civic projects from beginning to end, creating stronger local communities.

Jail Education Solutions (JES) – More than 10 million people cycle through the nation’s jail system annually, and more than half return upon release. JES is revolutionizing the jail experience by converting the TV into a medium for change that educates, informs, and inspires.

Learnmetrics – Learnmetrics develops applications that break educational data sets free from silos to help educators discover trends, explore patterns, and communicate insights faster and easier than ever before, helping all children reach their potential.

Meal Sharing – Meal Sharing enables travelers and locals to connect with each other over home-cooked meals. The online application builds community, promotes cultural exchange, and encourages people to live healthier lives through the delicious world of food.

ShelfFlip - More than 90 percent of all products with a resale value are either thrown away or forgotten. ShelfFlip makes it easy to find and catalogue the products you have purchased online, calculate their resale value, and sell them with just a few clicks.

Smart Gardener – Smart Gardener provides the landscaping industry with a custom technology solution that enables them to expand and accelerate small-scale local food production.

Youtopia - Youtopia is a student engagement platform that provides instant access to plug-and-play gamification tools that incentivize students to become more involved in their classes, schools, and communities.

Zero Percent – Zero Percent is an online food donation marketplace that helps businesses move surplus, edible food to nearby soup kitchens and shelters, reducing both hunger and waste.
