Meet our 2019 Dragon Fellows!

We searched long and hard all winter, throughout the state of California, for the most impactful and innovative projects, from the most dedicated teams.  We are proud to introduce these 20 Fellowship project teams.

Each team participated in our 6 month incubator program, where we provided our Dragon Fellows with 5 days of leadership training and paired them up with mentors to help plan their projects.  Each project also received up to $5,000 in funding to execute their project.

Congratulations to these amazing Dragon Fellows!
