The second round of the Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) program is now live: it pairs top innovators from the private sector, non-profits, and academia with top innovators in government to collaborate during focused 6-13 month “tours of duty” to develop solutions that can save lives, save taxpayer money, and create new jobs.
Presidential Innovation Fellows have a unique opportunity to serve our Nation and make an impact on a truly massive scale.
The PIF Program brings top innovators, entrepreneurs, and change agents into government for 6-12 months to develop game-changing solutions that benefit the American people in a myriad ways -- saving lives, saving taxpayer money, and creating new jobs. Regardless of one’s political affiliation, this is a wonderful opportunity to engage in improving our country.
Each team of innovators is supported by a broader community of interested citizens throughout the country. The 1st round of five projects was launched in August 2012 with 18 inaugural Fellows. This round includes nine projects – four that are the second phases of Round 1 projects and five new projects.
They are looking to put together a dynamic, diverse, innovative class that will produce tremendous results for the American people.
Applications are now open for Round 2 Fellow from February 5th and close this Sunday March 17th
We encourage the innovators in our BizSpark Community to apply for this program.
