Impact Hub graduates

Monday, November 18, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

Impact Hub Austin has graduated its most recent class of startups and nonprofit organizations focused around addressing housing affordability and workforce development. At a final showcase held Tuesday, 10 groups offered presentations on the work they’ve completed since enrolling in the accelerator program that was created to take on civic issues facing Austin. The groups are: Austin Justice Coalition (housing equality), Digital Docent (workforce development for young people of color), Diva-Licious Brands (food products for underserved neighborhoods), Equidad ATX (community revitalization), Haven Connect (simplifying housing waitlists), Level (education for prisoners), My Brother’s Keeper Scholars (increasing higher education enrollment for underserved communities), Prowess Project (job training for at-risk women), Survive2Thrive Foundation (temporary housing access), and The Other Ones Foundation (work opportunities for the homeless). To date, groups enrolled in Impact Hub, which is supported by JPMorgan Chase and BuildFax, have helped 875 people find housing and another 470 people gain job training to earn a living wage.
