Criteria

The Impact Accelerator works with Orthodox nonprofit founders who cater to the North American Jewish Community. The Accelerator selects ventures which provide goods and services to the Orthodox community in ways that are related to its unique cultural or religious needs and that might not otherwise be made available to the community. Preference will be given to ventures that:

  • Address critical needs of the Jewish community
  • Provide innovative solutions
  • Have been in existence for more than six months and/or have an initial proof of concept
  • Are operated by tax-exempt organizations or plan to seek tax-exempt status
