Impact Accelerator

Agora entrepreneurs participate in a session exercise during the 2012 Entrepreneur Retreat in Granada, Nicaragua.

The Impact Accelerator is the product of seven years of research, investment, and experimentation into the best ways to help high-potential, early-stage impact entrepreneurs succeed. The program is focused on entrepreneurs with scalable, profitable businesses that will create measurable impact, and that are looking for growth capital in the next 6-18 months.

We provide access to mentors, investors, and industry leaders – while also providing tailored consulting to help companies prepare themselves to be able to attract equity and debt investors. Our fellows program provides entrepreneurs with access to professionals that would be otherwise unaffordable.

The program kicks off with a required, weeklong Entrepreneur Retreat in January. After this, customizable options are available based on the needs and growth-stage of a participating company; most choose to attend the Impact Investing in Action conference, an opportunity to pitch to an audience of impact investors. All participants emerge with a trusted peer-to-peer network of like-minded entrepreneurs who can support one another – even do business together – long after the program ends.
