Accelerator Program

The Accelerator Program aims to unlock the potential of social enterprises, create a strong deal pipeline for investors, and build ecosystems for impact investing in developing and emerging countries. Since its first launch in 2012, the Accelerator Program has attracted over 300 applicants from China, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. Following intensive screening and due-diligence by our ICats Accelerator Fellows, seven early-stage organizations are receiving the necessary support to improve core business areas, strengthen their organizational capabilities, and become eligible for larger investments.
The Accelerator Program is a 9-24 month program for social entrepreneurs seeking to take their organizations to the next level of growth and impact. The program provides hands-on business consulting and customized financial support to outstanding, early-stage social ventures with a high potential for scaling-up and positive impact.
On the investor’s side of the Accelerator Program, we continue to build our resource library, proprietary toolkit and database, and communities of angel investors and mentors in order to provide the relevant resources, supporting networks, and platforms to early-stage organizations.
