    • Parenting

In today’s Tech and Teaching episode, we welcome Clare Richards, the co-founder and CEO of Impacks, a startup dedicated to easing the burden on parents and educators in accessing critical school supplies.
 Impacks are revolutionizing the school supply shopping experience, making it not only easy and affordable for parents but also providing an option to support students in need through donations.
Tune in to learn the impact of Impacks on the back-to-school journey and how Impacks supports the entire school ecosystem, promoting successful classrooms by supporting the student and the teacher.
Clare Richards is the co-founder and CEO of a startup called Impacks, which supports parents and educators in accessing critical school supplies. Clare is a creative by-trade with a strong love for building vibrancy through action and storytelling. She is known for her ability to kickstart initiatives, engage emerging leaders, and lead passionate teams to accomplish ambitious goals. A notable example of this was her part in co-founding and leading a young leaders group called Saint Cloud Rotaract in 2015. Her work as a community volunteer and advocate has gained her recognition as a St. Cloud 5 Under 40 award, a 2022 Top Outstanding Young Minnesotan, and the 2023 JCI Ten Outstanding Young Americans award. Clare volunteers her time on various boards, including the Greater St. Cloud Development Center, Central MN Community Foundation, the University of Minnesota Center for Integrative Leadership, and Granite Table. Prior to starting Impacks, Clare spent a decade in the marketing and advertising field. When she isn’t volunteering or working, she can be found binging a good podcast or playing her ukulele.
