The Key to Unlocking Innovation
The Points of Light Civic Accelerator is the first accelerator program and investment fund in the country focused on "civic ventures" -- for-profit and nonprofit startups that include people as part of the solution to critical social problems. The three-month, bootcamp-style program convenes 10-15 teams in person and online with the goal of equipping each startup to seek investments and scale their social innovation. The Civic Accelerator was launched in 2012, in partnership with Village Capital, and receives generous support from PwC Charitable Foundation and Starbucks Foundation, both founding partners, and from the Blackstone Charitable Foundation, SAP and our official hotel sponsor, Hilton Worldwide.
