25 million American families live on less than $25,000 a year.

Blue Ridge Labs @ Robin Hood is a Brooklyn-based social impact incubator. Our programs encourage entrepreneurs, designers, and developers to build products for communities that are often overlooked by technology.

Our six-month Catalyst program gives social ventures the opportunity to build an organization that could reach millions.

We're looking for brilliant teams with a prototype that need support to scale their social impact.

Applications close at midnight on September 6th.

The Fellowship

Our five-month, paid Fellowship helps innovators build high-impact products for low-income New Yorkers.
By taking a customer-centric approach and pushing our fellows to iterate quickly and cheaply, we aim to build products that can really make a difference.

We are not currently accepting applications for the Fellowship, but sign up for the newsletter for announcements.
