About this Program
The Social Good Accelerator is led by the Iowa Startup Accelerator in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The program is designed for nonprofit organizations to gain the same benefits and have access to the same resources as early stage businesses.
Teams accepted into this program would have access to grant funding upon acceptance and additional funding by achieving milestones over a 12 month period.
The program begins on September 10, 2018. The first 90 days will be intensely focused on your team development, designing a business model that is sustainable, and building the resource network your organization requires to thrive. The first week of the program is an Orientation Week that will introduce you to 100+ people in the community that are potential mentors, advisors, customers, and stakeholders. We will also focus our attention on high value workshops that will help your team work effectively in an Agile environment.
All teams accepted into ISA's Social Good Accelerator will be expected to be in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for the first 90 days. We are prioritizing eastern Iowa nonprofit organizations for the 2018 Cohort.
