About this program

With support from Comcast NBCUniversal, 2Gether-international created a  10 week accelerator program to support BIPOC entrepreneurs with disabilities.

Throughout the program, participants are given tools and guidance to develop and strengthen their pitch with the program ultimately culminating in a pitch competition where entrepreneurs can earn funding for their business. This opportunity takes a strengths-based approach to helping participants significantly improve their pitch and business model, as well as help them to perceive their own disability as a competitive advantage rather than a weakness. Throughout the duration of the program, 10-15 Disabled BIPOC founders leading high-growth, high-impact tech startups will be competing for $10K seed funding.

What can selected startups expect?

  • A series of startup workshops tailored to the unique experiences of people with disabilities.
  • Access to custom one-on-one coaching from accredited leadership coaches.
  • Peer-to-peer founder discussion and networking groups.
  • World-class speakers and mentors in the entrepreneurship and/or disability sector.
  • Connections to investors and support fundraising both during and post-program.

*Since launched in 2020, graduates of other 2GI Accelerator cohorts have collectively raised over 18 million dollars in funding.

What are we looking for?

  • The startup must be led by at least one BIPOC founder with a disability. See how we define disability here
  • Here's how we define the BIPOC community: People of color, including Black, Indigenous, Hispanic, and Asian-American
  • Must be working on a high-growth, high-impact tech startup.
  • Must have a product that's in the market - an MVP is okay.
  • Must have availability to meet and attend: classes, peer-to-peer sessions, speaker series, and coaching sessions (tentative schedule below).
  • *Note that startups do not need to be working on accessibility technology to apply.
