There are a growing number of social enterprise accelerators, pre-accelerators, and startup bootcamps - and there is increasing competition to get into them all.

In this webinar for scale-ready social enterprises, we will get to hear from social enterprise leaders, as well as directly from accelerator directors to help you decide on which accelerators are best for your organization, and how to make your application standout!

This will be most useful for social enterprises already in operation and in the early stages of scaling.

Our speakers include:
1. Rachel Crawford, Innovation Manager, Village Capital
3. Brent Ruth, Global Partnerships Manager, Entrepreneurship Database Program
2. Brian Bell, Director of Programs, Agora Partnerships
4. Anna Phillips, Director of Strategic Partnerships, MovingWorlds.org
5. Luni Libes, Founder and Director, Fledge

  11. 11. Key Lessons 1. Your best chance of getting admitted is showing real market traction and social impact 2. Do you research and only apply to accelerators that align with your mission and are for the right size and stage of your organization 3. Growth rate is more important than size - show that you are progressing, and explain how the accelerator will help you do that more effectively 4. Try, try, and try again - the vast majority of organizations will not be accepted on their first try. So keep trying. 5. Network and build connection with alumni, mentors, and others who can provide guidance
