Cooperative Impact

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.

Insights from a 2020 Cohort →

Cohort #5


March 1st, 2022

Create social, environmental, and financial change by bringing your heart-centered idea from inception to first transaction.

The intention of this program is to provide intra-preneurs (entrepreneurial employees and consultants) and entrepreneurs with the people, tools, and experiences that enable them to serve the evolving needs of their communities, companies, and their own lives.

Access wraparound support from your peers; immersive learning experiences with world class creators; transformative workshops with cutting-edge facilitators; and an opportunity to learn how to effectively launch heart-centered ventures that impact social, environmental, and financial metrics.


You will start from within to build a deeper relationship with yourself so that you may build deeper relations with your peers, partners, families, and friends. You will decide to build with a team, or build alone. All good either way.

You will immerse yourself into your community to practice listening. Upon which, you will learn to see insights from the data you observe and collect. As a cohort, we will turn your insights into prototypes that you will experiment with until you validate your concept and move towards your first transactions.

Each learner in cohort #5 will receive a complimentary month of service directly from Cooperative Impact's founder, Daniel D'Alonzo, as outlined below. A message from Daniel:

Thank you for the opportunity to grow your heart-centered business together. I look for to providing you with world-class research, purpose-driven strategy, and hand-crafted deliverables.

We start where you are. I will ask questions to wrap my head around your goals and understand how your project, venture, community, etc is bringing you closer to your vision.

Metrics. This is where we begin an ongoing dialogue about the metrics that are important to you, your team, and your company. It is through your authentic expression of self that you create a magnetic effect that attracts and unifies people around who you are and what you believe.

Baseline. This is where we take stock of the business with things like Cost to Acquire a Customer (CAC) and Lifetime Value of a Customer (LVC). How many times does the phone ring? How many requests for service or product sales took place in the last 30 days? We walkthrough your business model, customers, and the existing patterns that enable your people to operate the company in service of your customers.

Internal. This is where we look at the way the people relate with one another on your team. This attention and care to your people is a way to bring your energy together in a meaningful way so that it can radiate into the hearts and minds of your customers.

External. This is where we look at the way your customers are moving through your business. How can we improve the customer experience by streamlining the way we do things internally?

Deliverables. We sort through the deliverables you need to create for the month. I will create at least one strategically placed, hand-crafted, culturally relevant digital asset per month (ie: article, analytics setup, specific list of data-driven improvements, editorial strategy, roadmap, campaign design, program design, microlesson, video, infographic, etc).

Feedback. I provide feedback on all work you ask me to review. I encourage you to take advantage of this because each time we go through the process of improving your deliverable results in higher quality experience for your customers.

Each asset we create together is also minted as an NFT as part of its proper collection (if applicable), and setup as a passive revenue stream.

One-on-one sessions with me for up to 150 minutes per month. Unused minutes rollover to the following month.

Unlimited text and email support through direct communication with me. Ask questions, get feedback, and anything else your business needs.

Cooperative Impact is an evidence-based evolutionary theory.

Cooperative Impact offers experiences that invite learners to decide how they want to change themselves based on who they are right now. We ask questions like, "Who would you like to become? What do you believe about yourself and the world? What is important to you?"

This is an invitation for learners to bring their whole self into the way they carve out a place for themselves in the new economy. What if such a change could start from within? What if that change could be initiated by the individual rather than (sometimes) through violent aggression? What would that world look like?

Cooperative Impact is built upon the Four Movements.

The intention is to create space for a person to intentionally evolve themselves in a way that influences their behavior along the journey. This journey is not linear. It is, perhaps, a spiral. Ongoing. Evolutionary.


Come back home to yourself and take full ownership of your life.


Develop relationships with culturally aligned people, places, and things.


Cultivate the underutilized potential from within your community.


Bring projects through the venture life cycle that start from within.

There are six archetypes that we tend to embody as we move through the movements.

The Self

We are beautifully and wonderfully made, every one of us, with a role to plqy as part of a global community of others where seeing, nurturing, and empowering who we are, will see us flourish as part of humanity.

The Listener

Sawubona, peace be with you. I see you and your heritage, I hear your story and wish to be here with you, only to understand you moree, to hold you in this space, now.

The Storyteller

The story is us, it is in us and of us made manifest through the fullest expression of self as a part of a community of others where we share our stories in equity to create meaning and life.

The Creator

Our beauty in expression as gift and as part of creation is to create as one with the genesis, the beginning to the now, and we bring all that we are and all that we do, to bear, in making.

The Gatherer

We are found most fully in gathering, in finding the others, in inviting together in our way, being, as an expression born of our gifts and emboldedened in the paradigm of wanting to walk with others.

The Manager

The gift, the child within grow, the conscious mind develops and endures that metamorphosis and we learn then apply skill so that the work we do to build provision finds full expression in roganization and disciplined, chose, patterns.

Worldbuilders is a 21-day immersive retreat experience that was inspired by the 2020 Emergence cohort who turned out to truly be Worldbuilders. We tested the retreat concept in Costa Rica in 2021, and are now gearing up to follow through with the end-to-end journey in November 2022.


Four eight-hour days of experimental workshops to create valuable projects for your world while using business to sustain and maximize your impact.
