Unknown Speaker

00:34:24 Breanna: Hello :)
Allan Tito
34:48
Hello Everyone from Sunny Miami! :)
Sarah Thomas
35:13
Hi 4.0 team and alumns
Katy Harris
35:16
Hello everyone! Pam here with Respectful Ways character curriculum out of Atlanta, GA. :-)
Melissa Scatena
37:39
Hi! I’m Melissa - just got back from an incredible weekend in New Orleans participating in the Essentials fellowship. Huge fan of 4.0! Excited to learn more about Tiny Fellows. I am working on creating a coaching program for parents to better engage in their student’s classroom and school community. My current favorite book is The Power of Habit!
Sarah Thomas
38:43
Hello, if we are accepted, are we still able to do our ideas part-time, or is the expectation that we work on our projects full-time?
Sydney Kastner
40:27
Hi Sarah! We expect that people will be in different stages, but the program is created so that you do not have to work on your projects full time.
Sarah Thomas
40:55
Thanks Sydney! What about after completing the program?
Urvi Morrison
41:53
Is there a rolling acceptance?
Hassan Hassan
42:26
Hi Sarah - we don’t require that you transition to full-time after completing the fellowship. Though many fellows at that stage have enough validation to consider that leap.
Sarah Thomas
42:38
Thanks, Hassan!
Hassan Hassan
43:09
Hi Urvi, no - we open apps every six months. The current app season will be open until May 14
Urvi Morrison
43:22
Great, thanks, Hassan!
Malika Humphries
44:34
I have an idea for an innovative school design and model built for blended learning and whole child development but I do not have a partner at this moment. Do 4.0 help partner people if there is interest to do so?
RD Leyva
44:44
What does the diversity within diversity look like in fellows and alumni? In particular, how many (or percent) of fellows and/or alumni are Latino? Do you break down the number of people of color into further race/ethnicity demographics?
Hassan Hassan
45:38
Hi Malika - could you clarify what you mean by partner? Do you mean a co-founder?
Malika Humphries
46:08
yes more like a co-founder
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:46:23 Kendall Johnston-Legg: Essentials because I need to talk with potential users!
Suzette Duncan
46:33
i think essentials because we haven’t tested with our users.
Ophelia Battle
46:33
I think Essentials because I’m in idea phase
MJ Mathis
46:39
Essentials sounds right for me because I could really benefit from thought partners
Karyn Gleeson
46:41
I am uncertain
Sarah Thomas
46:43
I think I want to do Tiny, because I have been working on my project for 2 years and we have gotten some traction. It's all self-funded though.
Nautrie Jones
46:44
Essentials because I want to test and refine my idea before leaping to an extended pilot
Urvi Morrison
46:51
I am not sure. I have an idea that I am piloting right now but it’s in very early stages.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:46:52 traceydumasclark: Essential because I have an idea
Jim Snyder
46:52
I am not sure right now.
Jodi Ryter
46:52
Essentials, but my idea is transition to higher ed. I'm a chemistry professor. Is this the program for me?
Karyn Gleeson
47:00
But I am leaning to Essentials
Christian Bell
47:00
Essentials because I'm still in the idea phase and need to get feedback from users.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:47:01 Breanna: I think Essentials because I need to talk with more users.
Andrew Witkins
47:02
Essentials because my plan is very, very nebulous.
Nautrie Jones
47:11
I think Essentials because I am in the idea phase
Anne George
47:12
I think Tiny because I've done some focus groups with good response, I have the product up and running, and I just completed a business plan by working with a local non-profit incubator.
Alpana Shitole
47:14
Tiny - because I have been testing my idea but I am not able to figure out the right channel , yet.
Malika Humphries
47:16
I fit in essentials because my idea is still in its infancy stage and I really need to talk it out
Amy Hunter
47:17
Essentials because my idea is in the early stages
Katy Harris
47:23
Respectful Ways character curriculum is in pilot at a charter school in Newark NJ! Tiny Fellowship works best for us, we're eager to learn more from the students and teachers. Thanks 4.0!
Shazia Choudri
47:28
Tiny sounds good for me. I have tested the product somewhat already and hope to do a paid pilot soon.
Kelsey Jones
47:36
I think Tiny becuase I have been working on this plan for a couple of years and we have already held 2 events (soon to be three) with the students we want to serve.
Allie Pasquier
47:37
Tiny sounds perfect for me: I have spent a few years doing pop-up play installations, and am now in a physical space where I can host children and families.
Joel George
47:37
I think I fit for Essentials because see the problem with social injustice and have passion to be part of the change
Allan Tito
47:37
Essentials for me at this time.
Melissa Scatena
47:43
Tiny for me!
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:47:43 Jill: Essentials because I've talked to a few students and teachers at my school, but would like to get feedback from others outside of my network
Gabrielle Bryant
47:44
I think Tiny because I am currently working with students and parents every day as an educator and have implemented various initiatives that I know work or don't work.
Blake Nathan
47:50
Essentials because of the support to flush out the idea and complete a small test run.
Aisha McMillan
47:54
So I’ve already completed Essentials but I am not at the point for applying to Tiny based on this just due to time constraints. So I would have to wait until next year?
Travis Hester
47:58
Essentials bcs I have a new idea I'm thinking about running a test on.... Tiny bcs I have already done some tests on a vibrant school model
Kristina Saccone
48:04
Tiny… we’ve piloted the work and would benefit from an extended pilot, data, research and lots of feedback.
Hassan Hassan
49:42
Hi RD - Thanks for your question. Check out our tiny fellows/alumni here https://airtable.com/shrQxUqGDRWTXsVof and essentials fellows / alumni here https://airtable.com/shrWuBMi1O4C1KMzt/tblyvnhES8czZvEB8. Also, read about how we are continuing to refine our own systems to increase equity and representation here https://medium.com/future-of-school/we-need-you-to-build-the-future-of-school-53131fd0a209
RD Leyva
52:09
@Hassan - Thanks for the info. I read through your piece in April when it came out and the info about your current fellows and alumni is helpful. I’d love to chat more if there are ways we can promote this to Latinos interested in entrepreneurship through our network
Katy Harris
52:45
With TINY do you help us fine a local school to pilot?
Hassan Hassan
53:03
RD - absolutely! Email me and Raph at hassan@4pt0.org and raphael@4pt0.org
RD Leyva
54:00
@Hassan - will do :)
Hassan Hassan
56:31
Hi Katy - we have schools in New Orleans that can serve as a host site to get you to practice your pilot. If we have alumni in your community, we work with them to help open doors. However, one of the goals of tiny is to validate demand - so we want you to lead the process of finding a school partner for your pilot.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
00:58:13 Alan: Hi Hassan, So I’m looking to support the transition from school to work - focusing on alternatives to college that lead to middle class income. Does 4.0 cover the transition out from school?
Sarah Thomas
59:36
Does 4.0 have any ownership in the project?
Hassan Hassan
01:00:11
@Malika - to answer your question about co-founders, we do not require that you have one to apply to our fellowships. We also do not do explicit matchmaking. That said, through our community building events, many of our fellows find potential co-founders, customers, etc.
Hassan Hassan
01:00:28
Hi Alan - yes! Please apply
Kristina Saccone
01:00:52
I feel you, Jen. Thank you to 4.0 for highlighting a mom-entrepreneur and being friendly to that family balance!
Hassan Hassan
01:01:38
@Sarah - no. We do not take an equity stake or serve on your board. We do expect you to share results from your pop-up and pilot.
Sarah Thomas
01:01:52
Thanks so much!
Aisha McMillan
01:02:06
What happens after Tiny? Specifically related to a school because a pilot is not the stage of opening a school.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:02:32 traceydumasclark: What is the time frame of the Essentials? A year, a few months?
Nautrie Jones
01:03:15
Do you all help with creating a name and branding for the company ?
Malika Humphries
01:03:35
Are we able to reach out to alumni fellows to ask questions if their idea is similar?
Malika Humphries
01:04:00
Prior to being accepted
Hassan Hassan
01:04:12
Aisha - great question. Right now, we’re building partnerships with orgs that support school builders through opening (like NewSchools Venture Fund). So after tiny, our goal is to provide a handoff to the appropriate downstream partner.
Aisha McMillan
01:04:57
Thanks @hassan
Karyn Gleeson
01:05:06
Do the schools need to be public or can they be private?
Nautrie Jones
01:06:06
How many people do you need to interview for the intial stage ?
Alpana Shitole
01:06:41
Question: Hassan, I have been testing my idea which is "providing the right tools to parents so they can instill the right attitude and mindset in their children to make the most of their education".
Unknown Speaker
00:00
Unknown Speaker
00:00
I have parents who are extremely interested and committed to the idea but are not able to to implement the idea through my channels. I have tested this idea through workshops, online forums and a mobile app. I am currently attempting to write a book so they can work on their pace with the information I have garnered.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
Unknown Speaker
00:00
Is this worth pursuing through tiny fellowship?
Nautrie Jones
01:06:52
If you are in the Essentials fellowship are you automatically in the Tiny Fellowshipw/
Joel George
01:07:12
What is 4.0 school return on all the time invested in the people who apply and launch pilots or programs?
Hassan Hassan
01:07:39
@Nautrie - yes, we have coaches who have expertise in branding. However, our primary coaching will be to get you evidence on demand, efficacy and viability through testing with your users.
Hassan Hassan
01:08:32
@Tracey - most Essentials fellows graduate within 3 months. But the fellowship is self-paced.
Sarah Thomas
01:09:06
My organization is international/virtual. Would that still work for Tiny?
Hassan Hassan
01:09:06
@Malika - yes, you’re welcome to reach out to alumni.
Malika Humphries
01:09:33
Thx Hasan
Malika Humphries
01:10:08
Once your school is up, is it considered a 4.0 school?
Hassan Hassan
01:10:14
@Karyn - schools can be private. We prioritize schools that plan to serve an intentionally socio-economically diverse population.
Hassan Hassan
01:10:38
@Nautrie - would you mind muting you mic?
Hassan Hassan
01:11:52
@Nautrie - to clarify, do you mean the number of students/families/users you need to talk to? Or do you mean the number of interviews we will do to select fellows?
Caitlyn Scales
01:12:46
I have to leave early to make it to another meeting on time. This was super informative! Thank you so much. Looking forward to continuing to explore the opportunity.
Hassan Hassan
01:13:56
Hi Alpana - glad you’re still working on the idea. You should apply for tiny and share with us your results to-date. Based on that, we’ll be able to give feedback on whether tiny is a good fit.
Hassan Hassan
01:15:22
@Nautrie - we run separate apps for essentials and tiny. However, we expect Essentials graduates (those who run a successful pop-up after Essentials) to be well-equipped to compete for the tiny fellowship.
Shazia Choudri
01:15:28
Love hearing from Rose. Her concept has a lot of parallels with mine.
Alpana Shitole
01:15:59
Thanks Hassan. I will. Would you be able to give a detailed feedback or is it just going to be a yes or no?
Aisha McMillan
01:16:35
Thanks guys! I’m in between Essentials and Tiny…whatever space that is :)
Urvi Morrison
01:16:37
I wasn’t sure earlier but now i know I’d be right to apply for Tiny.
Sarah Thomas
01:16:44
I think I'm ready for Tiny
Shazia Choudri
01:16:51
I still think Tiny is right for me
MJ Mathis
01:16:51
Definitely Essentials
Anne George
01:16:54
I still think Tiny is the right one.
John Taylor
01:16:56
I have already done a pilot of the Arts academy in Birmingham using spoken word and culinary for work force empowerment. I think the Tiny Fellowship is right.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:16:56 Jill: Essentials is the right fit for me
Karyn Gleeson
01:16:57
@ Aisha and everyone, I too feel I am in between the two
Andrew Witkins
01:16:57
Still feeling Essentials.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:16:57 traceydumasclark: Essentials
Malika Humphries
01:17:00
Essentials
Allie Pasquier
01:17:03
I think Tiny sounds great still because I have already started piloting on a small scale and have users.
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:17:03 Breanna: Essentials
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:17:03 Kendall Johnston-Legg: Essentials

Joel George
01:17:15
I think Essential may be right for my ideas
Blake Nathan
01:17:17
I think Essentials will be the best option

John Taylor
01:18:00
Tiny is perfect right now
Nautrie Jones
01:18:14
Is there a guide to how many people and what kind of information you need to collect?
Allan Tito
01:19:13
Essentials still
Sarah Thomas
01:19:14
Any tips from the alumns on application?
Hassan Hassan
01:19:35
@Joel - the results/case studies from our alumni’s pop-ups and pilots make our network smarter. Our alumni also come back and coach future fellows. Ultimately, we want the pop-ups and pilots we invest in to lead to high-quality schools, learning spaces and tools around the country.
Aisha McMillan
01:19:58
I’m exiting guys! Talk to you later!
Jen Chiou
01:20:17
Sarah- I think sharing what you've learned from your users so far in your application is helpful. Austin and team probably have more tips!
Urvi Morrison
01:20:24
Thanks, Austin and team! I have to go but this was very valuable!
Sarah Thomas
01:20:31
Thanks Urvi!
Hassan Hassan
01:20:33
@Sarah - unfortunately, we do not invest in international ventures. You must be serving users in the US.
Joel George
01:20:33
Thanks Hassan
Sarah Thomas
01:20:48
@Hassan the bulk of users are in the US
Unknown Speaker
00:00

01:21:44
Thank you, I will ask in a breakout session.
Nautrie Jones
01:22:06
Is there a guide to how many people and what kind of information we need to collect before applying?
John Taylor
01:22:39
I have already had a 6 week pilot. What's the best practice to share data?
Jodi Ryter
01:22:39
Informative session. Can I get my question answered by email? Is a 12th-grade to college transition ok for project scope?
Sarah Thomas
01:23:13
Hello, I have a follow up
Allan Tito
01:23:17
I Like Jodi’s Question
Jen Chiou
01:23:47
John-- After your pilots there's a short data collection form Tiny gives you to fill out
Sarah Thomas
01:23:51
Is it ok if I jump in?
Anne George
01:23:54
Thank you so much, this is fabulous.
Allan Tito
01:24:20
From Nautrie Jones to Everyone: (11:57 AM)
Unknown Speaker
00:00
Is there a guide to how many people and what kind of information we need to collect before applying?
Malika Humphries
01:24:26
what is the approximate number you are looking to accept for the Essentials group for this open period?
Jodi Ryter
01:24:33
Thanks Austin!
Jen Chiou
01:25:43
Allan-- they're flexible, I think any user data that demonstrates people want your idea is great. In my Tiny application, I had a couple partners who wanted to do the pilot together
Nautrie Jones
01:25:43
What about an idea about devloping teachers practices through learning communities
Unknown Speaker
00:00
01:25:53 Kendall Johnston-Legg: Thank you all so much! Looking forward to seeing if Essentials is the right fit!
Allan Tito
01:27:09

I need to head out but it was great speaking with you all! 4.0- thanks for organizing! If anyone wants to followup with me, my email is jen@codespeaklabs.com

01:27:27
Thank you all so much for this...it was so so informative!

Hassan Hassan
01:27:30
Thanks @Jen :)
Malika Humphries
01:28:27

Rose Espiritu
01:28:28
Feel free to reach me at rose.espiritu1@gmail if you have any additional questions :)
Hassan Hassan
01:28:41
@Malika - best way to reach us with Qs is to head to 4pt0.org and drop your question in the bubble in the bottom right corner
Allan Tito
01:29:40
Is there a limit to the people/groups that will be accepted; if so, is it restricted by region, industry, etc? Tx
Joel George
01:30:11
My experience if from both criminal justice and education. I feel education is a root to repair social problems. My goal is for students to gain education about the vast system along with better educating the justice professional in hopes to better integrate the system and the community- is that an idea 4.0 would be a fit?
Nautrie Jones
01:30:43
What about an idea about devloping teachers practices through learning communities
Hassan Hassan
01:31:13
@Nautrie - definitely apply. We’d love to learn more about your specific idea
Malika Humphries
01:31:15
If you don't get accepted will you know why?
Allan Tito
01:31:20
It is! Thank you!
Pam McNall
01:31:37
Thank you 4pt0! See you on the web ;-)
Karyn Gleeson
01:32:49

Great session and thank you for all the info
Nautrie Jones
01:33:01
Is there a guide to how many people u need to use for data
Malika Humphries
01:33:02

01:33:18
I thank you all for setting this up and providing more information!
