Overview

We believe the future should be better represented in Washington. That’s why we’re creating Policy Hackers, to develop a new cohort of innovation policy advocates. Applications are open from now until September 1, 2022

Policy Hackers is a year-long, non-resident fellowship program for tech professionals (Please Note: This Fellowship is not for people who already work in policy). The curriculum is designed to work around the busy schedule of innovators and to teach them how to be effective policy advocates in their current role and equip them for long-term success working the policy space.

This programming will include opportunities to meet and learn from policy scholars, top lobbyists, public relations experts, and government policymakers. It will feature small group discussions and seminars on topics such as:

  • How to influence the policy process
  • How to work with think tanks, trade associations, and public affairs or lobbying firms
  • Principles for the regulation of emerging technologies
  • Legislative procedure and regulatory process
  • How to work with state and federal agencies
  • How to engage with the media
  • Bespoke programming based on individual needs and interests

Fellowship programming will include the following (all travel expenses covered by the program):

  •  Miami, FL: Kick-off summit. October 11-14, 2022
  • Washington, DC: Mid-program summit. March 23-26, 2023
  • Virtual Sessions: Biweekly seminars with issue experts and policymakers

Readings will include authors such as Virginia Postrel, Jeffrey Birnbaum, Robert Caro, Neil Postman, Marshall McLuhan, Marc Andreessen, Rick Perlstein, J. Storrs Hall, Bradley Tusk, Katherine Boyle, Deirdre McCloskey, Tyler Cowen, and Cory Doctorow.

Past session leaders have included tech entrepreneur and author Antonio García Martínez; The Realignment podcast hosts Saagar Enjeti and Marshall Kosloff; Fmr. White House CTO Michael Kratsios; BGR Group President Erskine Wells; Members of Congress and their staff; Federal agency commissioners; policy experts such as Eli Dourado, Julian Sanchez, Chris Riley, Jerry Brito, Mike Masnick, Sam Hammond, Daniel Correa, Rachel Bovard, Daniel Schuman; and more.
