Who are we?

Boardable was founded by nonprofit founders to serve community nonprofits. Our mission is to dramatically improve the experience of serving on a board of directors, and to help organizations better engage with their boards and committees.

What we have built is both a software platform and a purpose-driven company that serves those who serve their communities.

Boardable sprang from a stroke of serendipity. It started when the United Way of Central Indiana approached Indianapolis-based creative agency SmallBox and its software arm, Gravy Lab, with a problem. UWCI’s ambitious mission and rising tide of support made it critical for the organization to find a faster, more organized way to engage with its more than 400 board and committee members. That’s not an issue organizations typically bring to creative agencies, but SmallBox, then led by eventual Boardable CEO Jeb Banner, specializes in serving mission-oriented organizations. That approach that not only endears the agency to nonprofits, it also attracts talent and leadership passionate about making an impact at the community level. Banner and several of Boardable’s future co-founders knew the pain points of board engagement and how they made organizations less effective. They had already found their own nonprofits, and served on multiple boards. Furthermore, they knew that most board management software options are too expensive for community nonprofits. Seeing an opportunity, they designed an online portal that unified boards, committees, and organizations in one place. With that, they founded Boardable. The opportunity they saw was quickly realized. UWCI soon became one of Boardable’s first customers, and less than a year after the company’s founding, Boardable became a preferred provider to the United Way Worldwide Network Purchasing Program.
