What Inspires Us
We believe academia is a powerful but underused resource. Thousands of scholars and billions in funding drive breakthroughs with the potential to deepen our understanding of our world and transform healthcare, government, business, and education. Yet this knowledge often remains trapped behind costly paywalls in largely impenetrable formats.

How do we ensure research and knowledge reach the people who can turn it into action?
What We Do
Footnote partners with researchers and academic institutions to increase the impact of their knowledge. We translate academic expertise into actionable, engaging thought leadership for mainstream and targeted audiences. Footnote provides its partners a full range of services from communications strategy and idea generation to content creation and promotion.
Customers such as Brown University, the Mayo Clinic, and the Rhode Island School of Design hire us to develop goals and strategic plans for delivering research and thought leadership to new audiences.
We have created over 125 engaging and accessible articles in collaboration with more than 100 academic experts from institutions such as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, and Johns Hopkins.
Publishing and Dissemination
We share content with the general public and targeted audiences through our website, social media, and media partners such as The Boston Globe, Business Insider, Fortune, the Huffington Post, The New Republic, and Quartz.
