The Work Continues at Blue Ridge Labs
We are incredibly excited to announce the re-launch of our blog! A lot has happened in the past year, from joining Robin Hood to re-launching our second summer fellowship. The fellowship is currently one month underway and we’re going to spotlight some of our past and current fellows, share some insights from the field, and keep you posted on the progress of the products.
This year our fellows were selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants to trailblaze social innovation using technology and design. Throughout the summer, they are designing and building products collaboratively with underserved communities, focusing on possible tech interventions for individuals working in the informal economy, caregivers trying to maintain their children’s educational momentum through the summer months, and immigrants looking for trustworthy social and legal services.
Check back weekly to find updates and thoughts from our fellows, staff, alumni, and wider network!
