Social Innovation Incubator

The Incubator is designed exclusively for early-stage social ventures led and staffed by women and people of color. We welcome participants who are implementing creative new solutions to long-standing community challenges in education, income and health.

The 12-week organizational and leadership development program seeks to correct historical opportunity and resource gaps, as well as systemic racial and gender inequities, in the social innovation sector in North Texas. The Incubator includes personalized mentorship and an online learning platform that guides participants through the process of developing a validated business plan.
