GroundWork Labs Alumni
A few notable local alumni of the GroundWork Labs program include ècree,. They created an automated writing assessment tool that helps teachers develop strong writers. Another alumni is Fokuslabs, creator of a smart wristband that prompts its wearer to get back on task. Both Ecree and Fokuslabs went on to win the $50,000 NC Idea Grant.
Additionally, GroundWork Labs has an alumn called iScribes. iScribes went on to raise over $500,000 in equity funding after participation in the program. They provide online medical professional scribe services to doctors so that they can spend their energy focused on their patients instead of record keeping.
We are thrilled for this honor! We look forward to growing and learning more from this program.
