If you are involved in the early stages of a company or social enterprise that can make a impact on climate change or other impact issue, there are an increasing number of accelerators and incubators that can provide assistance.
A startup accelerator is a program designed to help early-stage enterprises grow and develop by providing resources such as mentorship, networking, and funding. These programs usually last for a set period of time, such as 3-6 months, and provide startups with the support they need to bring their products or services to market.
A startup incubator is a program or facility that provides resources, support, and services to early-stage enterprises to help them grow and develop. Similar to a startup accelerator, an incubator provides startups with the tools they need to bring their products or services to market. Incubators typically provide shared office space and other resources, such as mentorship, networking opportunities, and access to funding.
Here is a list of some accelerators and incubators that focus on environmental or social impact. This list is an early version, look for more updates coming soon!
