In reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic, Stanford Rebuild was created as a collaboration across Stanford University to Engage Innovators, Encourage Action, and Offer Our Expertise. We could not be more inspired by the individuals and teams who have joined this program, sought the opportunity to make an impact, and committed what time they could spare to tackle a Covid challenge in their own community or the broader world.

More than 5,300 teams from all over the world have engaged with us, and each other, over the past eight weeks attending our virtual events, actively participating in our live office hours, and working through the Stanford Embark platform. We’ve seen an incredible amount of collaboration, networking, and peer support amongst the participants. We are truly grateful for everyone that has been part of the Stanford Rebuild journey.

To conclude the Stanford Rebuild program, we have organized a full day of inspiring and engaging events that will recap the sprint, highlight a selection of amazing Rebuild projects, and give you actionable next steps should you be continuing to work on your Rebuild project or another entrepreneurial endeavor.
