Propeller is currently accepting applications for its Growth Accelerator, a 16-week intensive program specifically designed to connect social entrepreneurs with the industry-specific resources they need to grow and scale their ventures. One-on-one executive mentorship, access to high-level networks and investors, peer-to-peer learning, pro bono resources, and free office space are just some of the benefits of being a Propeller Impact Venture.

This program is designed for established and startup for-profit and non-profit ventures with proof of concept and/or a track record of success that find themselves at a strategic point of growth. During the program, participating ventures will be working towards scaling their impact, raising external investment (debt/equity), and increasing revenues, customers, and contracts.

More Info

For the 2016 class, we are seeking 12-15 ventures that bring innovative solutions with proof of concept to Propeller’s four target sectors of water, food, educational equity (ages 0-24), and healthcare. We will aim to select 3-4 ventures per sector. Applicants should have a validated business model with strong evidence of positive user feedback and/or sales.
