Every intention starts with an idea. Ours was simple: to connect. iConnectEngineers® was founded by a team of engineers who felt a void in their professional lives having to fit into the mold of being traditional engineers. Perhaps as a rebellion against the status quo, they recognized the real possibility of being an entrepreneur, leader, visionary, forward thinker and mindful engineer all at the same time. Rather than a specific incident, it was more of a life-trajectory and a series of ‘aha’ moments that guided them to create iConnectEngineers®.
Together, we began working to create an online platform to connect engineers through exceptional storytelling, putting them and their experiences at the center of the conversation. At iConnectEngineers®, our mission is to use engaging content, creative design, and smart campaigns to bridge the worlds of business, marketing and social innovation* with a primary focus on the engineering and technology industries.
*Social Innovation focuses on new work and new forms of cooperation (business models). —WIKIPEDIA
The founders have put together a strong team to help communicate the vision to transform how engineers connect, view and share content. Our hope is to create an environment where it is possible to unleash an engineer’s mind and spirit for creativity and compassion at every level and become global engineers, breaking down silos and moving away from a “fixed” mindset to a “growth” mindset.
“Where the left brain and right brain collide, pushing the status quo, and creating best results for our engineering and technology audience.” —iConnectEngineers®
With a strong social media network, engagement and audience reach, our core strategy is to connect engineers to ideas, opportunities, news, and other information through exceptional content.
The engineering profession is currently going through a tremendous evolution with retiring baby boomers and the coming-of-age for Millennials where engineers are no longer just filling the traditional mold. Even by just making a small difference in the engineering culture, it has the potential to inspire both males and females to climb onboard in the future and move out of isolated digital experiences and into the 21st century. These trends will have a major impact on the economy and society in many ways over the coming decades.
iConnectEngineers® support organizations and innovative initiatives that are committed to advancing our global community in the spirit of humanity and basic human rights. We believe when engineers connect, share, integrate and lead, we can improve our communities and make the world a better place. iConnectEngineers® is deeply committed to corporate responsibility initiatives through community engagement, diversity and environmental sustainability.
