What People Are Saying

“I just want to get to work - the accelerator literally restructured my calendar and to-do lists and helped our entire team reprioritize.”
-- Ted Gonder, Executive Director of MoneyThink and Civic Accelerator Alum

“The Civic Accelerator team delivers great value to investors. Their innovative and rigorous boot camp significantly upgrades both the business models of the ventures and the management competencies of the entrepreneurs. The result is a portfolio of investment ready civic ventures. We've already invested in one venture and look forward to investing in more."
-- Dave Viotti, Executive Director the Westly Foundation
