TESTIMONIALS OF TRANSFORMATION

PICTURE OF BEN PARTAIN

Testimonial : Ben Partain

“Project STARFISH has enriched my life by helping me stay motivated.I care deeply about the cause of blindness and the project reminds me of my commitment every single day. The project has created opportunities for whomever wants to work hard, advocate for themselves and more importantly others in the group.

I came here hopeful but not fulfilled. I wanted to gain the skills to help support my family but was lacking raw inspiration. I was cynical and skeptical but willing to give things a try, Subhashish said it would be intellectually grueling, that wasn’t near enough to describe what I experienced. The training led to opportunities for a contemporary job. I have been searching for one over a decade!”

PICTURE OF RHONDA PARTAIN

Testimonial : Rhonda Partain

I am a person who happens to be blind. I have always had the desire to work. I have interviewed for many jobs only to have them fall through because of lack of accessibility. I heard a podcast about a new organization that was seeking to provide blind and visually impaired people what they needed most, experience and opportunity. I have a positive attitude and believe I could be able to contribute in a job somewhere if only someone would take a chance and get to know me. I began taking the training at Project Starfish. I learned how to network with small businesses and startups. I learned to communicate with them as this is a 100% inclusive environment. My confidence and opportunity landed me employment with an IT company for servicing customers.

The Project STARFISH model

” We transform unemployed professionals to become workers for small businesses, who need resources to execute creating an ecosystem. “

Millions of emerging businesses fail to generate money , despite having a great product or service. Having a great plan, strategy or product is really not enough ;  they do not get the hands or the resources to generate money.

On the other hand there are millions of unemployed professionals who are blind, unemployed professionals with disabilities, homeless , wounded or  disabled veterans etc who have the talent/education,  but do not get the opportunity to learn, earn, gather relevant experience and get back to the workforce.

Project Starfish creates a virtual Experiential business learning and Opportunity platform, that transform these people looking for opportunities to learn, earn , grow and gather work experience by becoming smart workers helping emerging businesses grow. Its a model that creates business impact and social impact. It changes lives, brings hope to those who need opportunity and augments the economy by creating new jobs and keeping the jobs in the country.

WATCH A VIDEO: SUCCESS STORIES

Economic Impact

We  create new Jobs! We create a Workforce to help emerging Businesses grow&nbsp by providing them with a trained, skilled and managed workforce! We create entrepreneurs who have contemporary skills.

 

Social Impact

We create social impact. We create confidence among people who have lost it. We create professional identities that businesses care. We create leaders. How? We don’t “feed fish”; we “teach how to fish”. Now we are creating social opportunities that will change “the fishing industry”. We create hope, inclusiveness and dignity!

Empathy

We help bring leaders of today to experience how the Blind/ Disabled etc can do the same work as they do, but differently. That is true Empathy, so people are aware and are truly humbled at the way they create impact if given an opportunity. The world really needs the “Human Spirit” in people to shed aside differences and work with each other. We inspire people.

 Root Cause:

A detailed root cause analysis shows despite talent and ability, unemployed professionals :
1. Lack contemporary skills.
2. Do not get the professional opportunity to learn about businesses and are not connected to them.
3. Do not have professional work experience.

Ever heard of the problem “I don’t have a job because I don’t have experience, and because I don’t have the experience, I can’t get a job”. Its the biggest Catch 22 in society, today! 

Truthfully, an experiential platform to empower, learn, experience, network, engage and gather work experience is absent, globally!


Project Starfish Logo: A 5 pointed star or Starfish ( orange color) on a white background

Our Strategy: 

Project Starfish finds the best! We choose attitude over anything. Skills can be learned, but attitude can’t. We bring them and make them leaders.

We have an “ experiential training in a box ” that ramps them up to understand businesses, ramp up their skills into contemporary nature, network with businesses and contribute to helping businesses grow and earn an income. People experience real work, get paid by customers directly, build their resume and move on to full time jobs when the opportunity arises. The platform is virtual and can scale to cities, states, countries and continents. 

Project Starfish is perhaps the only Global experiential learning platform in the whole world that creates business impact and social impact at the same time, thus quite sustainable. We really create true impact, globally!
