At the OU Impact Accelerator, we are elated for our very own new beginning. On September 4th, we hosted the final selection night to decide on our inaugural OU Impact Accelerator cohort: 4-6 Jewish nonprofit entrepreneurs who will each receive seed funding and a six-month mentorship program. At the final selection night, 12 semi-finalists pitched their nonprofit ventures to the Accelerator Board, OU senior leadership, and each other. Our 12 semi-finalists originated from 57 venture applicants via an online application this past spring.
