Event description

Description

In the last year, Impact Hub Austin has hosted two accelerators focused exclusively on solving our city's greatest challenges. Our first cohort in fall 2017 tackled affordability, and we just wrapped up a spring 2018 cohort focused on workforce development. This fall 2018 we will take the focus back to affordability.

This issue continues to be one of Austin’s most challenging. As we're learning, affordability is not defined solely by a reduction in housing costs. For the majority of Austinites, housing and transit costs are their largest monthly expenses and in our second accelerator, we are also producing innovative options that address the intersection of transit and housing.

Help us kick off our second Affordability Accelerator and our goal of bringing together the civic, tech, and real estate industries to create sustainable solutions to Austin's growing affordability crisis.

Enjoy complimentary sips and snacks while we bring together people and ideas to sustainably address Austin's affordability challenges.

  • Expect meaningful opportunities to connect with subject matter experts and mentors
  • Network with people from different industries interested in tackling Austin's affordability challenges
  • Hear words from Mayor Adler on this issue and how our local government is addressing these issues

About the Affordability Accelerator

Impact Hub Austin’s Affordability Accelerator is a 3-month program focusing on advocacy, innovation, and financing to keep Austin (diversely) weird and affordably engineered. We bring civic, tech, and real estate industry curriculum and mentorship together to fast-track a cohort of teams that can innovate solutions to this pressing social issue.
