Linked Processes of Continuous Improvement

The projects on this page are works in progress that have been prototyped and tested, and are looking to grow.

Though they may seem different at first, they are all linked processes of continuous mutual improvement between private companies, nonprofit organizations, public schools, and government agencies.

Let’s Talk

Partners Sharing Success

Partners Sharing Success allows companies to pay for services by donating to charity. Contact us to book consulting, volunteer your services, or invest in scaling a sustainable social business allowing thousands of volunteer professionals to solve short-term needs in exchange for donations to charity.

Already budgeted

You need

You need short-term work, projects, training, or consulting. Your budget is already allocated. Pay for your work by donating to charity, using consultants who share time or access to resources. Examples include webpage or app design, graphic design, engineering drafting, coaching, etc. You receive quality work already budgeted, tax breaks, and a sense of shared community and purpose in your workplace.

Skills or resources

You can share

Sharing your time or resources with those in need. Your work is voluntary; we distribute 85% of payments to four charities: UNICEF, International Committee of the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the Wildlife Conservation Society, and use the remainder to sustain our nonprofit business. Most work is anonymous, with no benefit other than the opportunity to experience abundance.

Informed Healthcare Choices

We can help all people have more effective, lest costly healthcare. IHC combines existing regulations and cost-effectiveness in a simplified metric so that consumers can have a choice in healthcare. The business model is similar to what already works for food: The FDA regulates both healthcare and foods, verifying the minimum safety required but without grading efficacy or cost effectiveness, and private organizations build upon FDA food requirements to offer consumer choices based on organic, humane, or local foods. But, food is more simple than the complex world of medicines, medical devices, and hospital systems; IHC adds cost-effectiveness and safety of healthcare products, and oversight of hospital policies to ensure quality physicians and ethical reimbursement practices. Consumers benefit, and providers can choose to meet IHC standards.


Consumers: purchase insurance with our brand, select hospitals with our brand. Providers: ask us how to get our brand; our intentions are altruistic and our finances are transparent.

Compare apples to oranges

Choose effective healthcare

Choose insurance providers, hospitals, and physicians that are IHC certified. They have undergone a thorough investigation of their litigation and reimbursement histories, and use IHC certified medical devices and pharmaceuticals that ensure effectiveness and value for you and your family.

Meet our standards

Provide effective healthcare

Hospitals and physicians offer transparency in litigation and reimbursement records, and use medical devices and pharmaceuticals approved by IHC. Products are chosen based on current scientific literature, follow-up studies, and regulatory agency certifications: FDA CFR 820, ISO 13485, MDSAP, and EUMDR.

Partners in Education

PIE unites communities and schools in linked processes of success. We celebrate Pie-Day on March 14th (3/14 = 3.14 = Pi Day), where like Girl Scouts sell cookies we sell… pies. Our school partners are involved in the design and marketing of pies so that kids learn skills and practice entrepreneurship.

PIE corps

Our goal is to have all schools and our communities embrace Pi Day, where everyone shares a piece of the pie to support equitable education in entrepreneurship.

Equitable education

Schools and Education Programs

You can’t fail, so start practicing for success.

You work as student teams to create Pie Packaging and Marketing for our pies, designed to be sold in your community, with information on nutrition, calories for different portions. Teachers help by collaborating across disciplines, combining math, science, writing, and computer skills; using existing course requirements applied to a real-world project.

Once a year, all PIE schools participate in designing new pie recipes from scratch, continuously improve a pie recipe that works with your community. This is iterative design, part of entrepreneurship and engineering skills that can’t be taught but can be practiced. Iterative design is part of the Next Generation Science Standards required by most schools. More importantly, it’s a fun way to develop skills in engineering, entrepreneurship, and empathy.

Become Partners In Education

Parents and Community Businesses

Become engaged with schools in your community by supporting real-world, authentic practice in engineering and entrepreneurship. Help students design Pie Packaging and Marketing materials that work for your community, including diverse languages, dietary needs, and product distribution methods. This isn’t selling one product, it’s learning what is both useful and beneficial to your community by linking all of us in a process of continuous mutual improvement.

Some communities sell PIE pies in grocery stores, some in office buildings, some at parks and shopping areas. Each community is different, and each school will create innovative solutions with the help of Partners In Education.
