One Mic Stand: INeedaShot.org

Interview by Jonathan Kersting

One Mic Stand

From a winning idea at the Pittsburgh Civic Hackathon to a website connecting people to COVID-19 vaccines in the matter of weeks, INeedaShot.org is setting the groundwork as a platform to connect people to future vaccines and services in times of emergency. It also inspired the founding of the Tech Serving Society nonprofit to connect top tech talent in Pittsburgh to help build the platform. Tech Serving Society will now be ready to mobilize tech resources for future needs.

Tech Serving Society provides public benefit through usable technology interfaces, easing access to information and services available through government agencies and other for-profit and non-profit nongovernmental organizations, with a special focus on undeserved communities.
