Covid-19 has rapidly changed our world in so many ways.
In order for us to begin the process of recovery, we need to tap into our creativity and use it to start solving the problems we're currently being presented with. This is the only path forward to a hopeful future.
In recent months the Yeti team has felt called to use our expertise to create innovative ways of both navigating life during this pandemic, and ultimately recovering stronger than ever.
Stay Play Grow
Early Childhood Education During Covid-19
In early March we partnered with Early Learning Lab to create Stay Play Grow. This app is comprehensive one-stop resource for families with young children, providing a curated and comprehensive source of tools and resources for children aged 0-5, allowing them to continue learning while sheltered in place at home.
Helping Businesses Re-Open Safely During COVID-19
We recently partnered with Verdicity to build "Yes, We Are Open", a web app that helps businesses safely re-open, and remain open, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Yes, We Are Open" utilizes user supplied building/business information to create customized, up to date lists of resources on re-opening requirements, and the best methods to ensure those requirements are met.
Hack the Virus
Pairing Developers with Experts to Build Solutions
In April we organized and hosted "Hack the Virus", a 24 hour remote hackathon that paired developers and designers with experts in medical response, well, being, small business and education.
Together we ideated and prototyped solutions to some of the biggest problems caused by Covid-19, ultimately seeing the public launch of two amazing projects, Co-Care and Reach Care.
Connection. Cooperation. Compassion
Created during "Hack the Virus", Co-Care is a platform that connects individuals in need of assistance with volunteers who want to help, creating lasting community connections.
Find Covid-19 Testing Without Internet Access
The winner of "Hack the Virus" ReachCare is a texting platform allowing individuals without internet or smartphone access to find Covid-19 testing centers within their zip code via text message, providing underserved communities with an extremely valuable tool.
