ATXelerator deadline is Dec. 9
Friday, November 22, 2019 by Tai Moses
The Center for Austin’s Future is accepting applications for its 2020 ATXelerator program until midnight on Dec. 9. The three-month program trains participants “on the nuts and bolts of Austin city government and matches each member of the 25-person cohort with a mentor — most of whom are current or former elected officials.” The ATXelerator culminates in a competition in which class members pitch “a policy platform that they would advocate in a hypothetical city council race. Nine Pitch finalists compete in a live, public event known as the Center4ATX Games before a panel of expert judges, resulting in gold, silver and bronze medal winners.” Find more details and an application here.
