Activate offers four Activate communities: collectives of fellows who are either geographically or virtually connected. Geographically-connected communities are centered around a host city. These communities are: Activate Berkeley, Activate Boston, and Activate New York. The community that is virtually connected—but confined to the U.S.—is Activate Anywhere. Activate Fellows form close-knit communities across the United States. Each community receives intensive and personalized support from its dedicated team:
Fellows work across eight industries, aligned with Activate's broader mission to address climate change and other global challenges by reinventing the economy to be sustainable, resilient, and equitable. In each of these sectors, Activate is assembling a coalition of funders, commercial partners, industry advisers, and technology experts to help guide you.
