What is the JPoint Collaborative?
The ‘collaborative’ in our name refers both to how we work with our clients, and how our business operates internally. We employ an interdisciplinary, non-traditional, non-hierarchical approach to solving problems across and between fields and silos. We work closely with our clients to co-create solutions that work in the real world, providing the structures and background to help our clients think through what they want to accomplish, and how best to get there, while incorporating inputs from multiple sources at every step.
Taken in part from models like the artist collective and employee-managed manufacturing, a collaborative provides an alternative, equity-centered way to work on today’s biggest challenges. We provide our ‘collaborators’ (experienced consultants with a range of capabilities) with the creative flexibility to learn, grow, cross-pollinate, and test new ideas in a supportive team environment that enables our clients to best meet the moment. Contact us if you would like to learn more about the collaborative model.

She sees things from both a science and a people perspective - her insights have been phenomenal, helping us build our organization with enthusiasm and strategic vision. We’re moving fast to be responsive to needs in the COVID-19 pandemic, and we don’t have a lot of extra time on our hands; we have to create quickly and then iterate as we go.
