Description

Austin is a hub for social impact entrepreneurship. Come be part of our amazing community!

Austin has a thriving social-impact community: 6,000 non-profits registered in Travis County, at least four impact accelerators, strong support in our universities, an impact angel network, a city government that cares about impact, impact co-working spaces, impact support organizations, .... Wow!

Co-sponsors for this event are:

  • Black Women Talk Tech is a collective of black women tech founders who have a unique understanding of the challenges we face and the advantages we bring in the industry. We’re here to identify, support and encourage black women to build the next billion dollar business.

  • Mission Capital provides the tools, guidance, and resources needed to support Central Texas nonprofits, philanthropists, businesses, government agencies, funders, and activists in advancing equity and opportunity through their work.

  • Southwest Angel Network supports and invests in for-profit, social and environmental impact start-up companies, and is welcoming to diverse founding teams.

  • Tarmac TX supports Austin startup companies that are using technology to address environmental and social challenges

  • Tech Ranch equips entrepreneurs and ecosystems with insights, proven techniques, tools and processes that develop both the community and the entrepreneur. Tech Ranch has been recognized as a 2015 Top 3 Social Impact Incubator by UBI Global and 2015 & 2016 Top 20 US/Canada Accelerators by Gust’s Global Report. Its programs have influenced over 6,000​ ​entrepreneurs in 42+ countries with over 750​ solutions deployed.

  • UT Office of Inclusive Innovation and Entrepreneurship which addresses the income inequality gap for overlooked communities by helping community members learn about wealth creation, innovative thinking and community stewardship that will result in social impact. It works with both UT Austin students and nontraditional students along with community leaders, government, private enterprise, and NPO’s to create strong networks upon which new for-profit sustainable ventures can be launched that will uplift communities.

  • Women@Austin was founded in 2014 after several of Austin’s most experienced women entrepreneurs and executives came together to proactively support women founders. Their goal was to make Austin the most accessible and empowering place for women-led companies in the country. In 2018, Women@Austin joined Notley’s social impact ecosystem.

Immerse yourself in our impact community from 5-7:30 on Thursday, February 20th, at The Brewtorium, 6015 Dillard Circle, which is near the ACC Highland campus.
