Inspiredu is a nonprofit organization that supports the success of Greater Atlanta Area youth by providing access to needed technology and skills directly to students and their families, schools, and communities.
We fill a unique void, as we are the state’s only nonprofit focusing specifically on opportunities to use technology as part of a child’s learning support system while also addressing the challenges of digital literacy, access, and inclusion in Atlanta’s highest-need communities. We address these specific challenges in three distinct ways by providing:
A home computer with wrap-around programming—including educational software, training, and technical support which could help families create more robust learning environments at home.
Opportunities to support the STEM pipeline by helping students build skills and explore careers in technology
Digital literacy courses for the most vulnerable parents, caregivers, and community members of the schools we serve.

Our mission is to expand your business’ digital imprint, so you can make a lasting impact on the communities you serve.
We’re not here to just download templates and update plugins. We’ve assembled an active, creative task force to unlock the technical power of your greatest asset: your digital imprint. Your website is a living document that works as your 24/7 sales rep, all-access office, and data mining machine. It deserves robust design and maintenance—and, of course, a dash of magic.
Our goal is to bring value to your bottom line. Through effective design, empowering education, and assuming direct responsibility, we want your team to be free to focus on what you do best. We partner with your business for the long haul. We learn your daily operations, inside-and-out, so we can draft digital tools that feed your sales funnel and make meaningful connections.
“Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.”*
Especially business. Every day your business impacts the communities you serve—in real-time and space. Life’s intersections may be increasingly measured in clicks and emojis, but behind every data point is a real decision and maybe even a smile. And we want to be there with you, making it happen.

I was honored to collaborate with Jeff on Chat with Leaders. Even in our prep call his authentic and honest style brought out some of my stories that I rarely share around being a terrible leader in my early days of leadership. That discussion sparked a new aspect of “storytelling” I am now using with clients and it began with our prep call and the podcast.
I have been on other podcasts and radio programs over the years and Jeff’s professionalism including social media artifacts and f Read more

Chief Collaboration Officer, Highroad Global Services, Georgia
Over the last several years I have been shifting my work to include more depolarization, helping people to dialogue across opposing views. Being on the podcast gave me a forum to express the ideas I’m most passionate about, and also then to share the podcast on LinkedIn. This helped establish me even further as a trusted resource in the area of conflict management. Chat With Leaders was so professionally run. From the initial contact with Jeff to the recording session to the social media prese Read more

As an early-stage startup with an upcoming product launch, Chat with Leaders gave us a platform not only to build excitement around our launch but also to share my experiences growing as a founder within it. You can tell Jeff is genuinely passionate about each and every company he chooses to interview by how he approaches the interview, conducts it, and stays in touch beyond. My experience with CWL was phenomenal and I’m grateful for the opportunity, platform, and connections I’ve made from Read more
CEO, InspirEDU Atlanta, Georgia
Being a new nonprofit that transitioned from a national brand, it was important to establish our own identity and create an environment that sees us as a viable business rather than something that would fizzle out. Chat With Leaders allowed us to create that space and tell the story of Inspiredu so that people can hear the themes of mission, resilience, and courage. CWL is a company with the friendliest of people that made it comfortable for us to engage in a meaningful conversation. Since the p Read more

We thought we were going to have a conversation about all things work related, but we ended up diving deep into our values and how they relate to the work we're doing at our startup in a raw, authentic conversation. Grateful that Jeff was candid about his own life and family values even during our interview- we learned a lot from him even though we were the ones he was interviewing. Jeff is a cool dude.

I was really excited to be an early interviewee of the Chat with Leaders podcast with Jeff Bond. Beyond building ventures, it was great to talk about engagement with employees and the community and how it intertwines with the values that manifest in creating a great company and non-profit impact. It is always great to share a perspective with a greater community and impart lessons learned through the journey. Look forward to supporting the community and hearing more amazing stories.
CEO, Centegix, Georgia
I’ve had a lot of opportunities to participate in Podcasts, but Chat With Leaders was both unique and special. Jeff has a way of drawing out the big topics – things that matter. It’s not a podcast about business, it’s a podcast about life with a business backdrop. Even in the preparation for our session, I was challenged to look at the big picture. Instead of looking at our time together as a task, in retrospect, I view it as an opportunity to get smarter. Chat With Leaders is Read more

President & Social Entrepreneur, Brandon Hall School, Georgia
Chat with Leaders is a special kind of podcast as it marries my own purpose as a leader with the podcast's mission. As a result of appearing with Jeff, I have learned about the larger B-Corp network and the amazing, purpose-driven people who lead with heart! Jeff is a superb interviewer and beyond that a great conversationalist. This is a rare combination but it stems from his genuine desire to be a servant leader and break bread with others from all walks of life. If you have an opportunit Read more
