An accelerator is:
Mentors are paired with a nonprofit organization in the accelerator and attend each of the 9 sessions and Demo Day with them. They are a sounding board, a cheerleader, an accountability partner, and a guide. Past mentors said they loved the opportunity to add value to their teams and the majority felt like they succeeded in that.
Tuesdays, 8:30-10:30am. Sept 14 - Nov 9, 2021.
Demo Day: TBD, the week of Nov 15, in the evening. All participating nonprofits will have the opportunity to pitch to an audience of funders, supporters, and colleagues.
Location: In person at The Collaboratory of Virginia, 2101 Maywill St.
“Take advantage of the time with the mentor- extremely helpful!”
“[What I liked best was] The breakout sessions with staff and our mentor. Having the space and time for those conversations which are hard to prioritize in the normal flow of organizational to-dos.”
