2015 CivicX Year in Review

The Civic Accelerator had a great 2015.  We graduated our 6th cohort of social entrepreneurs scaling solutions benefiting women and girls, published our first 3-year impact report, launched a new website, and piloted Rapid Innovation Summits to support a broader audience of social innovators.
With too many successes to highlight, our team took a look back on the year to celebrate 5 of our most memorable moments.


With the success of 2015, we’re primed for an even bigger and better year in 2016. We’re excited to welcome our newest sponsor, Capital One, to help launch our 7th cohort which will focus on early stage, civic ventures that are creating greater digital and financial inclusion. The application will launch January 18. The official program will begin in April and conclude in June.

Our 2016 Conference will also take place in June and we are looking forward to convening innovators, nonprofit and community leaders in Detroit, Michigan for the nation’s largest conference dedicated to volunteerism and service.

From the Civic Accelerator team, we wish you very happy holidays!
