Program Timeline

Our team is here to help you refine your application and pitch so you can put your best case forward on Quick Pitch Day.

During the open call for applications, the United Way Social Innovation Accelerator offers Program Info Sessions and Application Workshops. Program Info Sessions focus on program specifics and the application process, while Application Workshops are working sessions to answer your content-specific questions and help you develop your best case. We ask that you attend a Program Info Session prior to attending an Application Workshop.

Once the application period closes, applications are reviewed and finalists are chosen and notified. The Social Innovation Accelerator invites finalists to present Quick Pitches with a slide deck to our investors and mentors. The following week, Quick Pitch finalists are notified and invited to enter the United Way Social Innovation Accelerator.
