Propeller is dedicated to supporting social entrepreneurship in New Orleans. Our mission is to solve pressing social and environmental challenges in our community by incubating the creative solutions of social innovators. Our 10-month Social Venture Accelerator helps early-stage ventures – for-profits, nonprofits and hybrids – become operational, reach financial sustainability and meet social-impact targets.
“Propeller has been an integral part of so many of our successes and we couldn’t have done it without them. We’ve been growing at such an amazing rate and it just doesn’t stop! It’s incredible to look back and think about where we were when we joined Propeller and how far we’ve come.”
