The Washington, D.C.-based incubator offers a highly competitive 18-month fellowship for social entrepreneurs.
Members of the 2018 class, which starts in the spring with a five-month residency program, are tackling issues in the headlines.
Ryan Soscia founded JDoe for anonymously reporting sexual harassment and assault. Yossuf Albanawi and Gautam Chebrolu developed Pilleve, a sensor-based pill bottle for tracking opioid consumption.
“I can now look at the news headlines with a sense of optimism, knowing there are incredible founders solving for these problems as we speak,” says Ryan Ross, Program Director for the Halcyon Incubator.
The 11 fellows represent 3% of total applicants. Halcyon’s program has supported 55 ventures in raising over $24 million.
