Accelerator seeks new startups to support

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

Austin’s Office of Innovation has partnered with Impact Hub’s accelerator program to provide up to $90,000 in funding to socially focused startups. The program is currently accepting applications for its next cohort of accelerator members, with up to six participants targeting housing affordability or workforce development eligible to receive one of six grants for $15,000 each from the city. Impact Hub member groups receive mentoring, workshops on a variety of business topics, coworking space and guidance on how to build and scale the startup into a viable company or nonprofit organization. Those with questions about how to participate can consult the innovation office’s FAQ page about the effort.
