Engagement of Audible with Sopact

Building IMM Capacity

Challenges before Sopact engagement

    • Audible

      - Audible has multiple programs in the community that need alignment to the business value pillars.

      - Audible is starting a pilot program leveraging Audible’s Newark Now debit card created with MoCaFi to support students and families at risk of food insecurity. It needs to have an impact framework defined from the beginning instead of evaluating it after the fact.

      - Audible needs a program-level dashboard to make strategic decisions for initiatives such as Newark creating jobs, sustaining businesses, and attracting foot traffic resulting in economic empowerment.
