The Collab Accelerator is a 11-week program for entrepreneurs who want to create positive change in their communities by building unique businesses and organizations.
Collab provides accepted entrepreneurs with childcare during program times, transportation to and from sessions, and interpretation/translation of materials as needed at no cost.
The core pillars of the Accelerator are Access, Confidence, and Pathways.
- Access: Collab is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive entrepreneurial community, and encourages applications from people of color, women, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ communities. The program is open to for-profits, nonprofits, and hybrid models.
- Programming: Through the weekly workshops, 1-on-1s, and the supportive community of the cohort, the program helps refine your idea, understand fundamental concepts, and build confidence together.
- Pathways: Collab works with you to build relationships with potential funders, service providers, and advisors to ensure our graduates feel supported beyond the 11 weeks in building and sustaining their organization.
ACCEPTED ENTREPRENEURS RECEIVE:
Workshops, Weekly 1-on-1s, A Mentor: Fundraising, Technical Assistance, and a slot on Pitch Day
