Nishita Deka and Dominic Labanowski
We exist to discover, fund, champion, and propel individuals who have a technology vision that could benefit society and who are committed to bringing it to the world as a new product or business.
Every year, we work with our partners to select a cohort of entrepreneurial scientists and engineers from around the world to be fellows. For two years these innovators embed in a world-class research institution, where they are supported with funding, mentorship, education, and connections with our network of industry leaders, investors, and philanthropists.
Our goal is simple: empower fellows to mature their ideas from concept to first product, while positioning them to align with the most suitable commercial path to bring their technology to scale.
We are assembling a community of committed public and private partners to support Activate. Through donations of time, money, equipment, or services, our partners allow us to advance our mission while supporting their aligned strategic priorities.
