In case you haven’t heard, earlier this week Mozilla launched the Fix-The-Internet Spring MVP Lab. This is an invitation to coders, students, creators and technologists from around the world to join us in finding sustainable solutions and startup ideas around several key themes designed to fix the internet.
“The health of the internet and online life is why we exist, and this is a first step toward ensuring that Mozilla and the web are here to benefit society for generations to come” said Mozilla Co-Founder and Interim CEO Mitchell Baker.
The Fix-The-Internet MVP Lab is an 8 week-long, online, incubator-style program to mobilize and fund products and technologies that enable everyone to connect and build a better society. Projects that are focused on COVID-19 solutions are welcome within the Spring Lab, but that focus is not required. Participants will work in teams of two-to-four, have access to mentorship through virtual weekly collaboration with product and engineering professionals, receive a $2500 USD/month stipend per participant, be eligible for prizes up to $25K, and benefit from Mozilla promotion of finished projects to gain users and awareness.
If you have an idea to fix the internet and want to build a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) this Spring apply at http://www.mozilla.org/builders. The application deadline is April 6, 2020.
