Build the
Future

Equitech Futures is a global fellowship and innovation lab dedicated to unlocking scientific and technological breakthroughs that benefit everyone.  

Built in partnership with the world’s

The future is already here. It's just not evenly distributed.

What if we empower a new generation of innovators from anywhere in the world with emerging technological tools so they can tackle urgent global challenges?

Our Vision

Reimagining how technology can be used for the global good.

We start with live, online, project-based courses delivered in small groups. From there, we invest in our talented alumni across borders through research, venture fellowships, and in-person conferences.

Whether you want to apply data science to problems in healthcare or design policy interventions to combat misinformation, we give you the tools, perspectives, and networks to accelerate your ambitions.

Our Alumni

"While working toward becoming a mental health researcher, I loved being part of a group of diverse and smart individuals from all over the world who are creating impact in their communities. It made for really enriching conversations."

Sharon Nafuna, Uganda

"The faculty crafted an inclusive learning environment, sensitive to the resources I lacked in my country, including stable internet access. It was really motivating to surround myself with fellow innovators who were so driven to go above and beyond. I'll have these friends for a lifetime."

Shakani Chiradza, Zimbabwe

“One of the biggest things Equitech Futures focuses on, and I find really lacking in this world right now, is collaboration over competition. The community came forward to support me in being bold about my vision and paving a different path for myself. I realized that there were more people supporting me and celebrating me rather than pushing me down.”

Aryan Gupta, India

"Despite growing up near Silicon Valley, I did not study STEM in college. Yet I was always curious about how technology can be used to solve problems. Equitech Futures gave me the opportunity to learn data science and AI surrounded by a curious, supportive global community that really made me feel at home."
