An open call for new ideas and new voices.

Deadline Extended: Contribute your idea by March 1, 2020.

Have a science or tech policy pitch for POTUS? The Day One Policy Accelerator can help make it a reality.


Through the accelerator, we’re inviting anyone with a science and tech idea to develop and showcase the best ideas for action on Day One of the next presidential term.

How It Works

1.   Submissions collected here until March 1, 2020

2.   A cohort of up to 25 selected to join us in a 45 day sprint to develop ideas into compelling proposals for action

3.  The best proposals pitch their idea to an audience of policymakers at a Day One event later this year
