The Straubel Foundation finds Roots Studio a bright example of the regenerative power that technology can have on our society and environment, without disrupting local contexts.  Roots Studio's business concept stands for urban decongestion and the furtherment of societal and environmental sustainability through building local economies. It is a brilliantly creative application of technology that enables people to elevate themselves from poverty while celebrating their unique skills. Rebecca Hui has a proven track record of success and we look forward to contributing to her mission.

Roots Studio has been featured or affiliated with TechCrunch, StartX, Echoing Green, MIT Delta V, MIT Legatum Center, MIT D-Lab, MIT Global IDEAS Competition, MIT 100K / Creative Arts Competition, The Girlboss Foundation and The Unreasonable Institute.
