We love sharing things that are #MadeOnFiverr, and this comes as no exception. Earlier this summer we partnered with MIT to assist them in their IDE Inclusive Innovation Competition. The competition focuses on the forward progress of technology, and the importance of access for all. "The acceleration of technology has led to remarkable benefits for business and the economy, but what about people earning middle- and base-level incomes? Digital innovations can enable a broader population to share in the prosperity of the Second Machine Age.

The Inclusive Innovation Competition identifies and celebrates those organizations that are inventing a more inclusive, productive, and sustainable future for all. "
Once MIT selected the 24 finalists, we provided each of the them with Fiverr credits and a list of curated Gigs to help them create their Inclusive Innovation Competition video using Fiverr services. We were lucky enough to attend the awards ceremony this week and see all of the incredible finalists' work. Here are two of the finalists, and the amazing things they #MadeOnFiverr.
