                                                      Truth: Not all opportunities are a fit for everyone, and not all help is impactful.

Plus, we’ll share some very scientific, tastey hints on where your secret sauce for impact lies. Nom nom.

We all have a unique secret sauce that can push this mission forward (or get wasted on the wrong fit). We see hundreds of new opportunities each week across dozens of sectors so we’ve designed this handy quiz to help guide you towards what type of opportunities you should be looking out for, and give you some very scientific, crafty hints on where your secret sauce for impact lies.
