The Hatchery Summer Innovation Immersion Completes First Cohort

The Hatchery Summer Innovation Immersion has just wrapped up its first cohort!

This program supported Emory student founders of both for and nonprofit organizations in all stages of development. Student founders in the Immersion attended weekly workshops to take them from idea generation through sustainability to scale, taught by industry experts in the Atlanta innovation ecosystem as well as Hatchery programming staff.

Each project has made tremendous strides toward their goals for the summer, as well as toward launching and building successful businesses, products, and programs. Learn more about the founders below.

Amal Mody (23B), Where Remote: Remote work is on the rise. Remote work is good for productivity, but not yet great for meeting new people like one would in an office. This project allows people to meet other remote workers wherever they work.

Anne Lim (23B), Berry is an ingredient-analysis app for baby and maternity care products. Berry has many features such as ingredient score filter and ingredient-analysis camera that will help parents make informed decisions for their purchases. Moreover, Berry introduces customers to small brands that make good, clean products by being ingredient-focused rather than big name brand-focused.

Linh Le (22T), Hospitalities is a platform that helps international students, immigrants, and refugees transit to the new country. The platform includes a task marketplace, a directory and a forum.

Adira Polite (23T), Then God Moved is an international collection of conversion narratives published in written, audio (podcast), and video format. I am also working to release a print collection, as well as scripted, based-on-a-true-story short films. The project is a means of both encouraging those within the Christian faith and stimulating conversation amongst those who are skeptical or even adamantly opposed. Ultimately, the project is meant to bless anyone who likes a good story!

Yifei Gao (23C), Art For Heart: Art for Heart provides a leg up for rising artists to market themselves and better understand their audience to create a creative empire grounded in community and technology.

Gabi Olmedo (24B,C), THRIVE Atlanta is focused on bringing accessible preventative healthcare to unhoused individuals in Atlanta. Through education, recreation, and nutritional practices focusing on improving overall health and quality of life, THRIVE Atlanta hopes to reduce the number of low socioeconomic individuals who go on to develop debilitating, unmanaged, and debt-inducing chronic disease.
