The Points of Light Civic Accelerator supports and invests in early stage civic entrepreneurs. The Civic Accelerator is heading to Seattle May 26 – 29 with their Spring 2015 class. This specific class is comprised of ventures that are specifically creating greater opportunity for women and girls to succeed, and many are seeking to expand their impact and operations to Seattle.
The Civic Accelerator will be in Seattle for an intensive boot camp session with our entrepreneurs May 26 - 29, and hosting one of their marquee events alongside the Starbucks Foundation: the CivicX Café, a unique twist on the typical accelerator “Demo Night.” It is an unique opportunity for impact investment, venture philanthropy, foundation, and CSR professionals to connect with promising impact entrepreneurs and share insights and feedback around their informal pitch through structured, coffee-shop style conversations in a casual setting. This is a non-solicitation, invite-only event with shared learning and relationship-building as the core objectives as these social entrepreneurs prepare to take their ventures to market.
