PopTech Fellows Programs

Since 2008 the PopTech Fellows programs have identified, trained and mentored 155 highly successful innovators, scientists and domain experts. This alumni group serves as the innovation engine of our organization and exemplifies our belief in the power of collaboration as a tool for change and progress against global challenges. The expertise of this unique network of change-makers routinely contributes to PopTech-supported initiatives, exploratory labs and a variety of consultative endeavors. We look forward to introducing the 2015 classes of Social Innovation and Science Fellows in September. Please stay tuned!

Social Innovation Fellows Program

2009 PopTech Social Innovation Fellow Deb Levine

Around the world, visionary change agents are hard at work incubating new approaches to the planet’s toughest challenges. Yet they’re often doing so without taking advantage of the latest tools and thinking in technology, communications and innovation – or a network of experts, peers, and supporters who can help them truly change the world. The PopTech Social Innovation Fellows Program is designed to help fill that gap…

Science Fellows Program

Aydogan Ozcan presents at PopTech 2009

At a time when our nation and our planet face unprecedented challenges, the sciences have a more important role to play in society than ever before. Yet today surprisingly few working scientists and researchers become visible, actively engaged public leaders. The PopTech Science Fellows Program aims to address these issues by developing a corps of highly visible and socially engaged scientific leaders.

Bellagio/PopTech Fellows

A periodic collaborative endeavor of PopTech and the Rockefeller Foundation, the Bellagio/PopTech Fellows brings together a small, interdisciplinary group of scientists, designers, technologists and social innovators at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in Italy for immersion residencies. The program is a unique incubator for unconventional, cross-disciplinary collaboration and also serves as a laboratory for the study of the nature of collaboration itself as a tool for creative problem-solving.

Please note, there will not be a residency in 2015.
