Accelerating Civic Entrepreneurs to Solve Social Issues

Commitment by

Points of Light Institute

In 2014, Points of Light committed to bring its Civic Accelerator program to an increased number of early stage for-profit, non-profit, and hybrid civic start-ups. Points of Light will extend the Civic Accelerator national platform by implementing regional programming in the Southeast, Midwest, and Pacific Northwest, and extending the core accelerator programming to include new fast-pitch events and short-form accelerator sessions. The number of civic entrepreneurs who come through its program each year will double to 300, and they in turn will engage over 375,000 individuals as they implement innovative solutions to problems in areas such as education, the environment, economic, and community development, and technology-for-good.
