Kettle logo

Kettle’s mission is to build better safety nets to protect people against crises such as climate change, pandemics, or financial downturns. We do this through building machine learning powered insurance - the most widely used tool we have to protect people from risk. Our first products include parametric evacuation insurance and a machine learning wildfire prediction model. We aim to use technology to align interests to create mutual benefit for all.

Ocupop logo

We are, simply speaking, a small, super-powered creative agency. We leverage the power of design thinking and take our role as a trusted expert VERY seriously. We work directly and openly with our clients, carefully sharing our process, researching and defending every decision, and earning and maintaining trust while we ideally blow their fucking minds.

Digital Harbor Foundation logo

Digital Harbor Foundation is dedicated to fostering learning, creativity, productivity, and community through education. In 2013 we transformed a closed-down rec center in Baltimore City into a vibrant Tech Center for youth. In 2014 we launched the Center of Excellence to train others how to incorporate making into their own learning environments.

Crisis brings out our most human nature, generosity, compassion, and care.

Art is what makes us human

We are a philanthropically funded program to provide financial relief to Professional Artists and Creatives affected by COVID-19.
