Who We Are

Who we are

Presidential Innovation Fellows is committed to reflecting the diversity of the people we serve. We’re a multidisciplinary team of product designers, full-stack engineers, and VC-backed founders. We’re also artists. Parents. Immigrants. Veterans. Walking into the office, we all share a passion for civic purpose—people helping people.

What we do

Hand-in-hand with federal agency leaders, we identify innovation opportunities of critical agency and/or national priority. As we do so, our team recruits outstanding private-sector technologists. And then, we unite. PIF embeds the nation's top engineers, designers, and strategists within agencies as yearlong entrepreneurs in residence. With our agency partners, our fellows advise, prototype, and scale solutions using industry best practices across data science, design, engineering, product, and systems thinking.

Our values

Design with the public

We create products and services with people, not for them.

Stay curious

We are lifelong learners who bring empathy and humility to complex challenges.

Focus on service

We don’t build tech for tech’s sake. We co-create solutions to enrich the skills, jobs, and lives of everyone in our country.

Be courageous

We do what is right for the people even, and especially, when it is hard.

Create inclusion

We recognize and celebrate what makes each of us uniquely brilliant. We foster a culture of belonging where everyone can do their best work.

Grow together

We make our agency partners, alumni, and collaborators successful. We center community in all we do.
