Post-grad Pigeon

with one comment

I complete my MFA in Design and Technolgoy studies a week from tomorrow, and will be graduating a few days after that.  It has been wonderful to work on Pigeon at Parsons.  I’m hoping to launch Pigeon as a full time venture moving forward.  Pigeon will start by focusing on US immigrants and the people that matter to them back in their home countries.  I’m currently exploring running Pigeon as a for-profit that has an eye on social investment (perhaps as a registered B Corp).  We’ll see what happens, but I’m excited for the next step.
