In the last few days, we’ve watched community members close a $40MM fundraise, release new versions of their products, and even hike Mount Kilimanjaro (we’re exhausted just looking through the pictures). Today’s the start of another momentous week in the Next Gen universe, and we can’t wait to see what you make of it.
We’re sharing jobs, tech, and grants for your startup. Read on to level-up your game this Monday evening.

⭐️The Environmental Costs of Fast Fashion (Patsy Perry)
Our two-cents on Perry’s article:
“It saddens me that talk of pollution has become a drone in our everyday lives. This certainly was the case for me until reading Perry’s article. ‘Fast fashion’ is fueled by our desire to live in the moment, but the impact of such an outlook will harm us in the long term. I began to think about everyday things I can do to mitigate this potential, and that’s what led me to thrift shopping. As Perry mentions, people are consuming more clothing and not keeping items for as long. My chosen solution is to increase the longevity of apparel, saving the planet one shirt at a time.” – Joanna M.
