We’re proud to announce our largest, strongest, and most diverse class of fellows class to date.
From now until Sunday, September 9th, we’re recruiting for our fourth class of Congressional Innovation Fellows. We started in 2015 with two fellows, and have grown incrementally since. This year, we’re growing again, recruiting for up to ten fellows to serve in Congress for one year beginning in January 2019.
With my last company, there were times where government helped and times where government hindered our ability to innovate. It wasn’t surprising to me when earlier this month The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine released a report saying that overly risk averse FAA regulations are stifling innovation in the drone industry.
Katherine is an MIT-educated aerospace engineer. She served for four years as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, primarily as an engineer working on operational readiness of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. As a PhD student in electrical engineering, Pratt is currently studying the security, ethics, and policy of brain computer interfaces.
We think it’s important to equip our fellows with the information and expertise necessary to thrive as a congressional staffer. We invest in each of our fellows to give them the skills that the average staffer compiles over time.
