During the open call for applications, the Social Innovation Accelerator (SIA) team is ready to help you refine your application and pitch so you put your best case forward on Quick Pitch Day.
Before the application period closes, SIA offers Program Info Sessions and Application Workshops. Program Info Sessions will focus on the program specifics and the application process, while Application Workshops will be working sessions to answer content specific questions and help you develop your best case. United Way Social Innovation Accelerator asks that you attend a Program Info Session prior to attending an Application Workshop.
After the application period closes, applications are reviewed and finalists chosen and notified. The Social Innovation Accelerator invites finalists to present Quick Pitches (with a slide deck and a business plan handout) to our investors and mentors.
The following week, Quick Pitch finalists are notified and invited to enter the United Way Social Innovation Accelerator.
