Introducing the 2013 PopTech Fellows

PopTech’s Fellows programs aim to accelerate the impact of emerging innovators and scientists, who are working to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

The 2013 classes of Social Innovation Fellows and Science Fellows provide another big dose of inspiration. From human rights to clean energy, financial inclusion to data security, and from health care analysis and empowerment to soft robotics, they are tackling big questions and goals that can make a major positive difference to society and the planet.


Check out the cutting-edge work of the new PopTech Social Innovation Fellows and PopTech Science Fellows.


Both classes of Fellows head to Maine in October for an intensive training program with expert faculty in order to concentrate on areas of importance to their endeavors. The Social Innovation Fellows focus on scaling their work by gaining new skills and visibility while the Science Fellows focus on becoming more effective communicators, collaborators and leaders both within and beyond academia. Both classes of Fellows form extensive networks of ongoing mutual support and mentorship that provide long-term benefits after their retreat.

Join us to hear them present at PopTech 2013: ”Sparks of Brilliance,” Oct. 24 to 26 in Camden, Maine. 

The Social Innovation Fellows and Science Fellows programs are generously supported by the Rita Allen Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Omidyar Network, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and National Geographic.

We look forward to seeing exciting collaborations and major results from these amazing new classes of PopTech Fellows!
