Have you ever met a woman who transforms every room she walks into? One who is sure to change the world? That’s our kind of woman. Our kind of human.

No matter what her chosen profession, whether an art teacher, chemist, entrepreneur, athlete, or engineer, she is always seeking the next discovery, looking to transform the path in front of her in a way that will leave her industry — and the world — changed.

There’s a resilience that has her transcend her circumstances to seek a higher level, a broader experience. A new pathway. Some pathways are harder than others. They are filled with violence, war, economic devastation, misogyny, racism, and any number of obstacles that would stop a less resilient human. But not her.

IMPERIA exists to provide a space of welcome, respite, and development for her. It is hard to stand alone with a big idea and a willingness to give it life. From the discussions we’ve held around the world, the feedback we get most often is “I don’t feel so alone now.”

Is that woman you? Are you burning with a big idea, and eager to build it with the support of an entire planet behind you? Welcome to the IMPERIA Innovation Incubator™.

By 2030, we will be welcoming participants from 195 countries around the globe. The women in our program are creating social impact projects to better their communities, industries, and the world at large. Meet our first cohort:

What is an “Innovation Incubator”?

Our Global Innovation Incubator is a leadership development program and community built specifically to include and leverage your strengths, based on your unique skills and abilities. Rather than focus particularly on startups, we are including women who are up to something that will make a difference in the world, whatever that looks like. Your idea should have the ability to impact at least 100 people.

The program will include women from every single country on the planet by 2030.

Designed around our methodology of Self-Directed Empowerment™, our curriculum will take the resilience you already have and raise it to a level that is renewable and sustainable — for life. A solar panel for your spirit.

What is the time commitment?

We estimate the program will require 5 hours a month including the coursework you will do and conversations with your mentor. Because the program was created to empower you to bring your idea to fruition (or bring your project to the next level), we’ve designed the work so all your effort is aligned toward that final goal.


There is no cost to participate in our program.
