Cooperative Impact

School for Worldbuilders

Cooperative Impact is for the person who refuses to accept the world that was given to them. It's for the person who wakes up everyday inspired and excited to be a part of something bigger than themself. They are the independent thinker with their own point of view. They want to meet good people, create meaningful projects, and build companies that change the way we live, work, love, and play. That's what they are all about, and that's what they do here at the school for worldbuilders.

Empathy is not a soft skill. It’s a practice and, like anything, the more you train the better you’ll become at it. Join Michael Ventura, Founder & CEO of Sub Rosa, and author of Applied Empathy, for a workshop on how to make empathy a meaningful skill in your leadership, problem solving, and personal development. In this session, Michael will share a mix of methodology and real world techniques that highlight the mindset shifts and practices necessary to build your capacity for greater and more versatile empathy at work, and in life.
