Applications for the next edition of the reSET Impact Accelerator are open through December 16, 2016.
Tailored for impact-driven businesses but available to all early-stage ventures, the Impact Accelerator was a winner of the U.S Small Business Administration Growth Accelerator Competition and was the only Connecticut accelerator to receive the award in 2015. The primary objective of the four-year-old accelerator is to test and hone entrepreneurs’ models and to connect them with customers, mentors, and resources.
Running from January to May, our 2017 accelerator will feature a flexible curriculum designed to help busy startups refine their business models in preparation for growth. Up to 20 entrepreneurial teams will attend four weekend summits and have access to:
- Dozens of optional workshops covering a range of topics in business and social enterprise
- Numerous structured and unstructured opportunities to engage with investors and advisors
- One-year reSET membership (includes access to co-working, programming, and the on-site Entrepreneur-in-Residence)
- Exclusive discounts on business software packages and other resources
The program will be free for accepted entrepreneurs and no equity will be taken from their operations. Participating ventures will also have an opportunity to compete for cash prizes in the spring.
Information sessions will be held at the reSET Business Factory (1429 Park Street, Hartford) on:
- November 4 and 29, 4-5pm
- December 9, 4-5pm
reSET’s accelerator has graduated 62 businesses to date. The most recent cohort has received $725,000 in investment.
