01 Nov Launch Indy Announces Social Enterprise Accelerator
Launch Indy, a coworking space for startups and remote workers in downtown Indy, will be hosting its first cohort of a pre-accelerator designed to prepare early stage social enterprises for growth or funding. The program will begin December 5th and end in late February with a public pitch event at Union 525. Participants will receive mentoring and instruction through workshops related to customer discovery, fundraising, marketing and branding, business plans, and other relevant topics.
“We’re seeing an increasing number of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations in Indianapolis focused on tackling society’s biggest problems,” says Katie Birge, executive director at Launch Indy. “This social enterprise accelerator is designed to help those in the earliest stages of their business validate their idea and prepare for the next steps of business growth. Companies who complete the program will be more prepared to apply to larger, equity-based accelerators or to simply grow their business.”
Any type of social enterprise-related business entity or soon-to-be-business is welcome to apply. The cost for participation will be $100. Applications are due November 14th at midnight through this page: http://bit.ly/launchsocialimpact
