The Social Innovation Accelerator Program
Our experienced mentors are paired with Fellows based on expertise and need. Mentoring can range from providing an overall sounding board to strategic problem solving in specific areas.
SIA Fellows navigate the Accelerator as a group and benefit by learning and sharing with each other. An important component of the program is building a camaraderie with a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who serve as support and a valuable resource.
Fellows can earn seed funding by successfully completing program elements.
The social capital of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas helps to increase visibility of SIA Fellows through media coverage, participation in community-wide events and digital community engagement.
The OCAG is designed to help measure the overall capacity of your organization and your organizational growth throughout the Social Innovation Accelerator.
After an initial assessment of your organization, we work with you to establish short and long-term goals that we work to achieve during the short five-month program. Staff provides accountability and creates forward momentum for our Fellows.
