About the Incubator

Watching Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook testify before Congress highlighted just how disconnected our policymakers are to a deeper understanding of how technology is changing our society and economies.

 

Ridesharing brought the 'gig economy' to the forefront and cities had a hard time understanding and managing the near-future impact and viral growth. We saw similar challenges to understanding the emergence of couch surfing / short-term rentals like Airbnb. These are merely a couple of examples of how innovation is changing our society.

 

The Culture Incubator is a pilot program where undergraduate and graduate students focus on the intersection of critical thinking, policy, community and the development of culture through the lens of digital identity and innovation that drives tangible solutions and action!

 

Focusing on three phases (IMAGINING, AWARENESS, ACTION) and framed around the concept of digital identity in modern society, the Culture Incubator is a new way of accelerating knowledge transfer that will incorporate the role of policy and culture into technical and social development solutions in order to ‘incubate’ culture the way we incubate new companies.

 

Curious? We invite you to join the experiment and come play with us!
