April Update

May 12, 2014

It’s crazy that it’s been a little over two months since this came together and we started building the idea.

In early April we launched Significance Labs, and now, one month later, we are excited  to share our  first progress report.

Inboxes Overflowing!
We were delighted – and little overwhelmed – to have almost 10,000 visitors and over 150 applications to the Solvefor{s} Fellowship. It’s been a whirlwind selecting our five fellows – and we look forward to announcing them shortly.

Community Connections.
In the meantime, we’ve been working with a half dozen great nonprofits and community groups to build out a pool of people from a variety of different backgrounds. From single moms to community college students to recent  immigrants, we have over 200 people for our fellows  and their teams to meet and learn from.  

Day in the Life program.
We hosted our first  Day in the Life  program. A dozen techies joined with a dozen members of different communities to explore and learn and share.  You can read more about its success elsewhere  on our blog.

Finally, we’ll be hosting a launch party in early June to bring together the broader community of people who are interested in finding ways to design and build technology for the people who would most benefit from it. We’ll let you know as soon as we nail down a date, and we hope you’ll be able to join us.

If you have ideas or suggestions or feedback, just drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you.
