Thank you for visiting goimagine and allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jon Lincoln. I’ve been an entrepreneur for most of my professional life. My first company started 20 years ago out of my college dorm room in Boston and since then I have founded multiple other organizations including a software platform for the insurance industry.
For a long time I’ve wanted to start a business that focused more on providing social good than investor profits. Like most people I’ve been frustrated watching corporate greed run rampant in the world and have had the urge to create something that does things differently.
I originally thought of this concept in 2017, but it wasn’t until November 2019 at an event in San Francisco that I decided to make it a reality. I was invited to an extravagant dinner with fairly wealthy people looking to earn my business. They were trying to impress me, but it had the opposite affect. The dinner was a 14 course meal that was $600 a person. Each dish was paired with a different expensive glass of wine that the waiter presented to me like it was the holy grail. Meanwhile, outside the restaurant were homeless people literally begging for food in the street. Eating such a lavish meal while people were hungry outside made me sick to my stomach.
That night when I got back to my hotel room I bought the domain name for goimagine.com and started working towards this cause. I’m passionate that if people come together on a charity-driven marketplace we can do some great things in the world together.
I can't thank you enough for being a part of this journey with me. By simply reading this message you are giving me faith that we can pull this crazy idea off.
I hope you goimagine with us.
