Accelerate for Good: How Startups Can Power Impact

Recording: Accelerate for Good: How Startups Can Power Impact, Mar 9, 2019


Accelerators are not new. But as business becomes more purpose driven, many entrepreneurs are looking to launch products for social good – sometimes intentionally and others serendipitously as a result of “tinkering.” Panelists will discuss how non-profit organizations can leverage unique products coming out of these programs to engage their constituents, how social entrepreneurs can get involved in accelerator programs, and how accelerators can add purpose driven innovation to their portfolios. Attendees will hear how R/GA partnered with the Ad Council to register voters through a Messenger bot; learn about Fast Forward’s focused on combining the best tech with non-profit business models; and how WeWork Labs is providing entrepreneurs the opportunity innovate for good.
