upcoming accelerators

Applications are now open for our next IA 10 program, starting in February 2019. Apply now.

Whether you’re simply one great idea or concept, a couple of steps away from taking your product to market, or an experienced startup looking for enterprise-scale guidance, our Academy Programs will help you to deliver on your impact goals.

We treat every selected enterprise as a scholarship funded position.  The cost to deliver our comprehensive program is offset through our partners and sponsors who know that grass roots social innovation has the capacity to solve global problems.

Unlike many accelerator models, we don't take an equity position upfront in the Social Enterprises coming through our program and there is no fee to participate.   If you're making the commitment to improve our world by starting and scaling a business, then invest in making that work.  We know our program and our people add significant value and benefits..... but equity should be earnt.

Our intent is to be a true partner in businesses that prove they can produce outcomes and that we like working with.  We'll work with you to find those impact investors to  fund early stages of development like we've done many times before.
