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.
