Criteria

The Impact Accelerator works with Orthodox nonprofit entrepreneurs that cater to the North American Jewish 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
