The Austin Impact Accelerator leverages entrepreneurship in order for everyone in our city to share in its growing prosperity.
The Austin Impact Accelerator is a free acceleration program that develops and brings to market a cohort of solutions focused primarily and purposefully on affordability and workforce development.
We understand that the public, non-profit, and private sectors play by different rules, have different funding strategies, unique market variables, and more. This Accelerator is uniquely developed with these components in mind. We are looking to support solutions that will have the biggest impact, regardless of the sector.

Our collective impact
“The government is part of the solution, but not all of it. The Austin Impact Accelerator has created an environment that provides us the answers that will guide us moving forward.”
-Austin Mayor, Steve Adler
The Austin Impact Accelerator began in 2017 and has seen five cohorts all focused on either Affordability or Workforce Development.
In 2019 the City of Austin partnered with Vuka to deliver six $15,000 grants to organizations and businesses focused solutions addressing the city's Strategic Direction.
Our work wouldn’t be possible without the collaboration and support of our community partners.
