Orthodox Union (OU) Opens Applications for Impact Accelerator

The Orthodox Union (OU) has launched the application process for the second cohort of its Impact Accelerator program to rapidly identify and invest in ventures addressing current and future Jewish communal interests.

The program runs over 12-months and is built on mentorship-based growth and early-stage funding for Jewish nonprofit entrepreneurs. Chosen ventures will be awarded up to $25,000 each.

Candidates for the program are Jewish nonprofit entrepreneurs who live in and cater to the North American Jewish Community. Ideally, applicants will have been operating their ventures for one to four years, and service critical needs of America’s Orthodox community through innovative solutions.

The application process includes completing an online form, an interview with the OU Impact Accelerator selection committee and a pitch to the program’s board. Applications open on July 15 and are due by September 5, 2019. For more information, or to apply, please visit: https://www.ou.org/accelerator/.
