Visible Launches Accelerator Program for Nonprofit Startups
Visible isn’t a traditional mobile company and when we launched, we didn’t want to have a traditional way of supporting social impact in our community. Our goal was to create a program with a more holistic approach to building community and support, a program that spoke to the heart and soul of who we are as a company and a program that would support nonprofits in a new way. And we were willing to launch before we had a single customer! A little unconventional, but we wanted to stay true to who we are and the impact we want to help create in our communities.
Enter Visible Connect: our 9 month accelerator program that focuses on providing capital, technical support, and mentorship by leveraging our leadership and teammates at Visible who act as mentors and subject matter experts. As a company, we’re committed to helping early stage nonprofits scale their organization and impact. While the accelerator is issue agnostic, meaning nonprofits can tackle any issue in our community, the thread that ties together is the use of mobile technology to create change and build a community of support.
Today, we’re looking to support the next generation of nonprofits in Year 3 of Visible Connect. Applications will be open through Sept. 7, 2020. If you are a social entrepreneur, or know someone who would be interested in applying, please send ’em here.
For the past two years, it’s been our honor to have had the opportunity to work with some of the best social entrepreneurs. Collectively, the nonprofits we have supported through Visible Connect have created meaningful impact for more than 5.5 million lives and it’s hands down the best business decision we will have made as a company.
