Call for Applications for the 2017 Philanthropitch Austin and Mission Accelerator!

Accepting Applications: February 8 – March 3

Does your nonprofit have an innovative program, product or service that you’re ready to dramatically grow? Do you need an infusion of capital to bring your vision to life?

On February 8th, the call for applications for the 2017 Philanthropitch Austin and Mission Accelerator goes live.

Philanthropitch Austin is a social impact, fast-pitch competition that spotlights some of Austin’s most promising nonprofits and the innovative solutions they bring to local challenges. Finalists pitch for financial and human capital to fast-track organizational growth, including more than $100,000 and acceptance into Mission Accelerator.

The Mission Accelerator is a five-month program designed to fast-track the growth and impact of Austin-area nonprofits. Accelerator participants engage in group classes and receive one-on-one guidance from nonprofit consultants and some of Austin’s most successful business leaders and social entrepreneurs. This unique opportunity brings new, high-value resources to a select group of nonprofits each year. Some of our Accelerator alumni include: CareBOX Program, Caritas, Con Mi MADRE, E3 Alliance, Easter Seals Central TX, Goodwill, Mothers Milk Bank, Multicultural Refugee Coalition, and Society St Vincent de Paul.

This year, organizations may choose to apply for acceptance into both Philanthropitch and the Mission Accelerator, or those organizations not ready to leverage the intense human capital resources of the Accelerator may choose to apply for only the pitch competition.

All finalists will present their case at Philanthropitch Austin on May 22, where more than $100,000 will be awarded and the 2017 Mission Accelerator class will be selected!

We encourage you to attend one of these optional information sessions to learn more, ask questions and build a winning application.
