Shuttleworth Fellowship

The Shuttleworth Foundation is a small social investor that provides funding to dynamic leaders who are at the forefront of social change. Recently, Field Ready's Andrew Lamb was awarded one of the prestigious fellowships.

Andrew aims to revolutionize humanitarian supply chains and, during the course of the fellowship, will develop and test the concept of Massive Small Manufacturing as a means of production to optimize supply efficiency and kick-start local economic development. The fellowship serves as an extension of the work Field Ready is doing.

Openness is a key principle of Shuttleworth, Andrew explains, "my idea is inspired by my work at Field Ready. Talented makers draw up designs for essential aid items in a post-earthquake camp in Nepal, prototype them with users, make and validate them and then share them openly online so that makers in Syria can download and make the items to sell to people there. The openness part is particularly important for affordability and accessibility. Finally, the process of developing Massive Small Manufacturing has to be transparent so its motivations are known."

Follow along to see how the fellowship progresses and some of the outcomes!
