Social innovation is an important approach for creating lasting change in our community. That’s why in 2013 we launched the Social Innovation Accelerator in collaboration with Accenture, which provides seed funding and other resources to support local innovators whose startups are addressing issues related to education, income and health.
Since its launch, the program has invested nearly $5.8 million in funding, training and mentoring for 54 North Texas social entrepreneurs. And, with the support of United Way’s community connections and credibility, our former fellows have gone on to raise an additional $28.4 million, build nearly 800 partnerships, and receive national recognition as they expand their positive impact in North Texas and beyond.
