Nonprofit Accelerator

Our Nonprofit Accelerator trains nonprofit leaders to discover, assess, and deploy internal innovations that create new sources of unrestricted revenue while furthering their mission.

The Accelerator is an intensive course where you, and a cohort of fellow nonprofit leaders, learn how to create new, unrestricted revenue. Along the way you will get special access to an elite group of successful entrepreneurs, innovators, and funders. At the heart of the Accelerator is the curriculum our founder originally built for Valley Venture Mentors. That curriculum proved pivotal in Valley Venture Mentors becoming recognized as one of the top 100 programs of its kind in the world. Top students have gone on to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars of new business within six months of graduation. Testimonials from nonprofit and for profit alumni can be found here.

Time: Half-day sessions meeting twice a month for six months. Each organization must send at least one person who is the owner/CEO/Executive Director or a senior executive with sufficient authority to Make Things Happen.
