...we are here to serve next generation leaders in their creation of human-kind businesses and community. The world we live in is changing, there is no doubt about it. The question is, what are we evolving to become? Imaginal Ventures is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that has made an intentional decision to support cutting edge, outside-the-box, creative disruptors who are genuinely focused on building a world we want to live in 50-100 years from now. Since our founding in 2019, we have been proud to witness how our activities have benefitted businesses, non-profits, educational institutions, and so much more simply because we supported a big idea and the leaders behind it.
Here are just a few ways we are serving imaginals...
The Imaginal Way©
The Imaginal Way is a way of leading from the heart, via intuition, with more focus on creating something in the unknown with less fear and more joy. Our founder, Lindsay Andreotti, shares the story of how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly in our welcome video. To put it simply, imaginals are the leaders who can envision the new and collaborate together to make it a reality--mostly not knowing what the 'new' looks like. They are often thought to be dreamers, disruptors, and revolutionaries, but not often embraced. At Imaginal Ventures, we embrace you, and know that if it weren't for the imaginals in this world, we would not evolve as a humanity. Let's get started together.
How to Get Started
Our mission is really simple: Share The Imaginal Way© through mentoring, growing, and supporting next generation leaders, inventors, & ideators, to create a world where businesses support humanity and the earth in kind, respectful, and collaborative ways.

A Message from
Our Chief Imaginal
Lindsay Andreotti, MSOD
When it comes to doing the work I love, I am at my best when I am deeply listening, discovering someone’s authentic passion & purpose, and supporting them through the process of taking courageous action to live their best life. Without a doubt, I am a mentor, a muse, and an imaginal who loves to watch new ideas become reality through the entrepreneurs and leadership teams I work with.
I am passionate about strategizing with & mentoring conscious leaders/entrepreneurs who want to "play to win" rather than "playing not to lose". I am a focused business strategist, mentor and team builder, with a 25 year history of deep business and entrepreneurship training along-side a repertoire of life hacks, emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence, and meditation that I bring to bear in all of my consulting, strategic planning, and mentoring programs.
In 2022 I embarked on the creation of Imaginal Ventures because I am noticing that there’s never been a better time in human history than now for imaginals to join forces and work on dreams and projects that inspire and propel us forward as humanity.
What am I (and the Imaginal WE) up to this year - 2024?
It’s fun to think about all the great ways we can serve communities and humanity this year ahead. Here are the top 4 things I’m working on this coming 12-18 months.
Building up and sharing with the world the One-of-a-Kindness™ Ambassador membership and brand. We will be writing a book and sharing Kindness throughout the world, one Jam Session at a time. In 2025 we'd love to have a Kindness Jam Session Music Day in Florida, inviting musicians and supporters to come together and bring the magic of Kindness.
We want to see the Kindness Currency expanding into more intentional kindness sharing opportunities throughout our communities we live and play in. Our intention at IV is to attract a company or two that want to see more kindness in the world and who will help us build a culture of kindness throughout their business ecosystem.
Co-creating the Kindness Jam Session program and giving it lift off in the US at first, and watching where it goes.
Being a great mom and bonus-mom to the kids and family members I love and adore.
Other interesting facts about my history, in case you want to know more:
I am an author, speaker, workshop creator, mentor and consultant. I’ve seen the best and the worst of business In my career. I have coached hundreds of executives and leaders who have had a huge impact on the lives of their teams, companies, and communities they serve. In my career, I have contributed to the growth and development of many "small but mighty" businesses and cities in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, and Vancouver, BC through mentorship and creatively connecting people in my network. Some of my more notable clients include: Tommy Bahama, Coinstar, Microsoft, The Audubon Society, Ads Inc., American Ninja Warrior Producers, City of Mercer Island, WA, City of Woodinville, WA, City of Shoreline, WA, City of Tustin, CA and hundreds of small businesses who wanted to grow in the most effective ways possible.
Although my past does not define me, it certainly has shaped my passion and growth toward building a kinder world through imaginals. I have been a Master Certified Trainer & Coach for Mindvalley, Inc. (www.mindvalley.com) and Clarity International (www.getclarity.com), who both produce workshops all around the world in living life on purpose and getting more out of every single day! I get great joy out of creating self-awareness experiences for individuals and groups who desire more satisfaction and conscious practices in their lives.
I also taught Entrepreneurship at the University of Washington, Seattle University , Lake Washington Technical College, Bellevue College, and a wide variety of high school classrooms. Because I just couldn’t get enough of the entrepreneurial life, I supported several start-up incubators in the Seattle area, and led the Start-up America effort in Washington State. In 2018 I moved to Florida full-time and have begun the efforts to enrich the entrepreneurial ecosystem in my new home state as well. I have spent countless hours with entrepreneurs and leaders in communities who truly want to change the world--and I am excited to see where we go in 2024 and beyond!
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
We are a non-profit for the primary purpose of being able to collaborate with sponsors and donors like you who also believe that business can and should be done differently--with kindness, respect, and collaboration. Your donations support all of our projects and the amazing people behind them. If you want to see our world operate differently, then you know it takes a lot of helping hands to make a butterfly out of caterpillar parts. Your generous gift helps us bring support to imaginals who need it most--those leading the way with dreams, alternative thinking, and solid 'good-human' skills.
