Think Tank Navigator is a free five-week online course that provides the information you need to start or improve a free-market think tank. Each lesson is available in text format, and includes practical exercises designed to put your new skills to work in a productive way — moving you closer to your goal of establishing or revitalizing a successful think tank or project.

Participants should plan to spend approximately roughly two hours each week to complete each module.

Testimonials for Think Tank Navigator
“Drafting a business plan made me realize how valuable a document it would be for our organization. I didn't really think of us as "missing" anything, but I think that this will be a big help. I'm drafting a business plan to present to our Board of Directors.” — Janet Neilson, Institute for Liberal Studies

“Thanks to Think Tank Navigator, I am certainly more aware of the different roles a think tank has. This I will apply in our current practice to position ourselves correctly in the market of ideas.” —Edo Omercevic, Center for Advancement of Free Enterprise
