The Goodie Impact Pre-Accelerator is a three-month program designed to help passionate leaders and early-stage ventures launch tech products, open source software, or digital marketing campaigns that save the world. In this fast-paced, part-time program, founders will walk away with a working product, landing page, logo, revenue model, and marketing plan to begin making an impact as well as attract funding. We produce the workshops, ideation labs, hackathons, and special events as well as recruit volunteer developers, designers, marketers, and mentors to develop ideas into thriving, sustainable ventures that create measurable impact.
Does your idea fit this year’s initiative around health?
Though we prefer startups to come from the program, you can also launch open source projects and digital marketing campaigns.
Zero. It’s completely free.
Because our amazing sponsors, partners, and volunteers want to help save the world.
