Every session at Fledge is a bit different than the others. For the Autumn 2013 cohort, running September through November, this includes something of a staggered start. The first four fledglings nestled into the nest today:
Close to Home is an marketplace for post-disaster homes. A place to go when FEMA lets you down, or for less massive disasters, such as home fires or remodels.
Community-conscious: keeping communities together
HydroBee has created a water-powered, battery-backed charger of USB devices, such as phones, tablets, and LED lights.
Environmentally-conscious: off-grid power generation
Self Spark helps people “life hack”. Like Startup Weekend for entrepreneurs, Self Spark helps people get on the path toward helping themselves.
Health-conscious: self knowledge and improvement
Village Green builds capacity and community for “conscious” businesses through resource sharing. Events include the Green Breakfast Club, a series of events begun in New York City.
Socially-conscious: creating community
The rest of the cohort will arrive in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, there is plenty of inspiration to go around with these four teams. If you are in Seattle this Autumn, please stop by. We are at Impact Hub Seattle every weekday, and our schedule of events is visible here.
And… save the eventing of November 21st to meet the fledglings and hear their visions at our Demo Day.
