At u.lab we have developed an ecosystem in which the needs of participants are met through collective investment. All of our programs integrate a layered model of feedback. Experience, ideas, energy, networks, capacity, opportunities, mentoring and expertise are exchanged in a virtuous loop.

Catalysts are passionate and visionary activators of the ecosystem. Unlike a traditional intern program, the u.lab Catalyst Program is a flexible framework for experiencing professional growth both by giving and receiving. Catalysts contribute to one of three clusters: Storytelling, Interfacing or Knowledge-Making. Catalysts develop their own individual, tangible project as well as contribute to a bigger mission mentored by leaders in the area.
