Local to Global
Generate Impact’s mission to impact the world started in our local community of Harrisonburg, Virginia.
In 2019, Generate Impact was rebranded from Chiedo Labs, a web development company started in 2012 by Chiedo John in a dorm room at James Madison University.
We tie our mission back to our love of family and community. Being rooted in Harrisonburg, VA brought influence from the JMU campus and local businesses passionate about making a difference and leveraging technology.
Our work within our community has given us opportunities to give back by volunteering our time and experience. One example is our work with On the Road Collaborative, which narrows learning gaps by connecting underserved middle and high school youth to educational experiences. Giving back locally in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley led us to our vision of creating a global impact.
