Kristin Wolff, thinker, doer, aspiring rainmaker. Kristin has worked in the social change space for over 15 years. She serves as an adjunct researcher for Social Policy Research Associates (Oakland, CA), runs thinkers + doers, and is “DIY-ing” her second masters – an un-degree comprising formal, informal, and experiential learning in social innovation, open data, and collaborative technologies. She likes working on work (and all things aimed at community prosperity). That’s why she’s a board member at Hatch Innovation, helping communities invest in themselves through securities crowdfunding.
Kristin is a solopreneur and a team player –working closely with SPR, Hatch, clients, and partners. She lives in Portland, Oregon where she and life-partner Robert hike, bike, and drink amazing coffee.
Clients call on us to help them understand community-centered problems, and build, test, and scale solutions. Making purposeful learning, inspired work, and social innovation universal is why we wake up in the morning.
Hi! Kristin here. When I first heard Don Tapscott say, “I’m talking about unbundling and reconstituting what is a government,” I got chills.
I still do.
At the heart of my work in education, workforce, or community economic development – and my collaboration with Hatch Innovation, Hack Oregon and Social Innovation Exchange – is a belief that the ability to connect people, assets, and ideas changes everything.
This is what I think and write about.

When I’m not traveling or at a client site, I work out of Hatch – a social innovation lab and co-working space in NE Portland. I’m easiest to reach by email, text, or phone. Can’t wait to hear what you are up to!
