The Points of Light Civic Accelerator – the first national accelerator dedicated to investing in civic ventures – recently announced the civic startups selected to participate in its Spring 2016 program. This will be the seventh cohort of the Civic Accelerator since its founding in 2012. The ventures come from across the U.S. and include for-profits and nonprofits that focus on digital and financial inclusion to help more people succeed in the digital economy.
If you are in Atlanta, you’re also invited to attend CivicX-Spring 2016 First Look, a Shark Tank-style event on April 14, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. The newest class of the Civic Accelerator will present how they are accelerating technology adoption & financial inclusion for all to succeed in the digital economy while you – the audience – challenge each team to think bigger and better.
