The Network’s Center for Innovation & Research is excited to share that the Jewish community’s leading engine behind the success of groundbreaking Jewish ventures, UpStart Venture Accelerator, opened applications today, for their eleventh cohort. Round 1 of applications is open for only two weeks: October 4th–18th. Information about the Venture Accelerator program, including eligibility criteria, can be found at upstartlab.org/accelerator/. Applications are accepted from across the U.S. and beyond.
The Venture Accelerator is an 18-month opportunity for organizations at a similar stage of growth to articulate and act on a sustainable plan for success. Accepted organizations will receive a substantial investment: $25,000 in initial funding, and eligibility to receive up to $75,000 in additional funding. Leaders of these organizations will receive intensive training, coaching, and network-building to help scale quickly and sustainably. Learn more in eJewish Philanthropy.
