Hang on! Blind people doing business research? How?
Many don’t know the secret! The blind use smart technologies like a screen reader which reads what a sighted people see. At 500 words per minute, screen readers make the blind hear at a very rapid pace making them great business researchers.
We exist in USA/ UK/ Canada / Slovenia / Denmark / Australia / Ghana / India and Argentina. We are 100% virtual, with people working remotely. Being virtual allows scale, operational efficiency, low cost, 24 X 7 availability – solution to unemployment.
Amanda became blind when she was 16. With modern technology, Amanda graduated as an MBA in International Relations.She has been part of Project Starfish from its inception. She still battles many other diseases, but she works as a Project Manager managing multiple business projects.
Project Starfish created the platform to gain the work experience she needs to become employable. Hundreds of blind people have been trained on our workforce development model that creates contemporary 21st century experience. We have Master degree holders, PhD’s and even people with no degrees as well. An Equal Opportunity platform!
The Project STARFISH model
” We transform people to become workers for small businesses, who need resources to execute. “
On the other hand there are millions of blind unemployed professionals, disabled unemployed professionals, 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.
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!”
Testimonial : Rhonda PartainI 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.

Project Starfish : IMPACT
We create three kinds of Impact. We are perhaps the few business models that create Business and Social Impact together
Project Starfish : A little more detail!
What do we do? How do we do? Why do we do it?
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 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!
