A Message from the Founder

One goal I have is to be the dumbest person in the room. Throughout the Pilot Fellowship, I’m proud to report that I felt that way often. Each fellow demonstrated that they were capable of navigating complex, intellectually challenging topics, and fellows were consistently willing and enthusiastic to help one another. I saw fellows develop their own projects, exchange ideas, and bring passion to making a positive impact on the world. Many fellows changed projects as they discovered more ambitious and impactful options, showing sound decision-making and impressively little regard for sunk costs. The ability to reason and use evidence is crucial in solving the world's pressing problems, and we are proud to help foster those skills in the next generation of leaders.
