Propeller is currently accepting applications for its Startup Accelerator, a sector-based 12-week intensive program, specifically designed to connect early-stage social entrepreneurs with the resources they need to turn their ideas into tested and viable solutions. One-on-one executive mentorship, access to high-level networks, peer-to-peer learning, pro bono resources, and free office space, are just some of the benefits of being a Propeller Impact Venture.

Propeller’s Startup Accelerator targets those companies or organizations that are currently in the idea, pilot or development phase of their product and/or service. During the program, participating ventures will be working towards launching their pilot and/ or acquiring their first paying customers and revenue.
