Announcing NEW INC's 2016-2017 cohort!

Now entering our third year, we're excited to announce our incoming class of new and returning members. Our incubator program brings together a cross-disciplinary community of artists, designers, filmmakers, curators, computer scientists, data scientists and entrepreneurs working at the intersection of art, design, and technology to experiment with new models and modes of cultural production. While this new class continues to produce creative work and products inspired by, responding to, or leveraging the tools of emerging technologies like 3-D printing, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence, among others, they are distinguished by doing so with a greater focus on social impact.

Projects this year tackle a range of pressing issues related to pressing social issues such as income inequality, privacy, diversity, the refugee crisis, climate change, and disability, among others. Many of the new ventures take the form of social enterprises, non-profits, and public benefit corporations, and several have a strong focus on serving communities through education.

NEW INC has also introduced a new residency program designed to bring additional expertise to the community and engender a culture of peer-to-peer mentorship. Residents are seasoned artists, entrepreneurs, and researchers who are embedded within the NEW INC cohort. While they develop ventures of their own, they will also serve as in-house mentors and community catalysts, hosting office hours, organizing programs, and contributing content to NEW INC’s digital channels. 

Please take a look through the brief biographies of our new members and help us welcome them to our community!
