In 2016, Five by Five launched the Civic Innovation Fellowship
(formerly the Paris Summer Innovation Fellowship) in partnership with the City of Paris. The goal was simple: bring together the brightest and most talented individuals from all over the world to solve issues affecting cities.
What happened was anything but: 20 fellows came from all over the world-- Israel, Mexico, USA, Colombia, Canada, and across France-- to stretch the limits of what they could accomplish over the span of a two-week program in Paris.
They received resources and support from partner institutions and experts across a wide range of disciplines from data science and machine learning to urban design and hardware, transportation and cutting-edge mapping technologies.
