“The Impact Accelerator was developed to facilitate social entrepreneurship – to allow creative minds within our community to bring forward new and exciting programming to meet pressing, unmet needs,” said OU Executive Vice President Allen Fagin. “This creativity, coupled with guidance, mentorship and resources from the OU, will stimulate the growth and development of these crucial endeavors.”
5 Ventures. 3 Seminars. 9 Days. 50+ Mentors. 70+ Hours of training. We’ve been busy at the OU Impact Accelerator. Our entrepreneurs have noted the Accelerator is time to work “on their businesses, rather than in them”. Here’s some of what we’ve been learning about.
We'll let you know about the next application cycle, upcoming events, and more.
