Calling All Volunteers: Join the Social Innovation Accelerator Virtual Agency Fair

This is your chance to learn more about and volunteer with our Social Innovation Accelerator fellows

At United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, the Social Innovation Accelerator in collaboration with Accenture is one of our most exciting programs. That’s because every year, we partner with a new batch of innovative entrepreneurs who are working to solve our community’s most challenging problems in new and creative ways.

Now, through our Social Innovation Accelerator Virtual Agency Fair, our volunteers and other supporters have a chance to learn more about some of our amazing Accelerator fellows. Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 12 p.m. CST as some of our current and former fellows share more about the work they do, what’s on the horizon and how you can volunteer with them to impact the community.

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.
