Impact Accelerator

Thursday, January 18, 2018
12:00am – 11:59pm


Beginning Oct. 2nd, we'll be accepting applications for our 2018 Impact Accelerator. Tailored for impact driven businesses but available to all early-stage ventures, the Impact Accelerator was a past winner of the U.S. Small Business Administration Growth Accelerator Competition. Our five-year old accelerator provides entrepreneurs with access to the knowledge and resources that they need to grow their businesses and impact. Over the course of four months (next January to May), four weekend summits and 20+ optional workshops, participants of our latest cohort will be connected to customers and industry-specific mentors. It's free to enroll in our accelerator and it'll culminate with a Venture Showcase that we host next spring, where graduates will compete for at least $20K in unrestricted funding. It's always a fantastic, sold out event, with New England's most innovative startups on stage.
