Economic Mobility Accelerator Powered by Samvid Ventures
2024 dates to beannounced
About the Program
The Techstars Economic Mobility Accelerator is cultivating solutions to address the needs of low- and moderate-income Americans. The program is run in partnership with Samvid Ventures and is now entering its second year.
Each year, we select 12 companies to receive up to $120,000 in funding and 13 weeks of intensive coaching and mentoring, along with curated resources on social enterprise strategy, business development, and fundraising, including non-dilutive funding. Startups will gain access to a valuable network including investors, corporate executives, experienced founders, thought leaders, and alumni. The program is based in Samvid Ventures’ office in New York, where founders build deep relationships with their cohort and beyond through networking, conferences, and events.
Change We seek to drive
We seek to drive impact and growth metrics for each company, as well as high net promoter scores for the accelerator experience.
Applications to join Techstars Economic Mobility will open in March 2024. The next accelerator will run in New York from September through December 2024, and will culminate in a Demo Day where participating companies will pitch their business to investors and industry leaders.
