From Forbes: Techstars Steps Up Its Impact Game

07/16/2019

First of all, Techstars Impact just started its second cohort of tech-focused social enterprises. The initial class in Techstars’  first impact-only program, based in Austin, was announced about a year ago.

Also, in 2018 it launched the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator, a sustainability-focused program in Denver, in partnership with the Nature Conservancy, for for-profit tech entrepreneurs aimed at sustainably providing food and water and addressing global issues like climate change. The program kicks off at the end of the month, with a pitch day in October.

Plus, about a month ago came an announcement about another social impact program called the Cox Enterprises Social Impact Accelerator powered by Techstars. The emphasis will be on companies in the areas of “STEM training, environmental sustainability and community-enriching initiatives,” to quote the company. Applications open in a few weeks; the program will start in January 2020.
