Applications to Impact Engine's accelerator program

Impact Engine, a new 12-week accelerator program, supports early stage, for-profit companies that tackle today’s societal and environmental challenges. From public health and clean energy to community development and beyond, we’re looking for business ideas that create a positive social impact.
Program Benefits

As an Impact Engineer, you’ll receive $20,000 in start-up capital, user-centered design training, mentorship from Chicago’s brightest business minds, help trying to find early customers, face time with potential investors and the opportunity to work alongside other impact entrepreneurs at Chicago’s 1871 Entrepreneurial Hub. In addition, you’ll work with Chuck Templeton (founder of OpenTable) and Arun Sivashankaran (seasoned entrepreneur and technical mentor) on a day-to-day basis while tapping into a network of experienced professionals with expertise that’s relevant to your industry.

The Impact Engine team will help the first group of approximately 10 entrepreneurs, Impact 1, build their business models, expand their customer bases, and develop opportunities for growth. Our entrepreneurs will have access to vetted legal and accounting professionals as well as hundreds of investors at our Investor Day presentation in December.
