We wanted to let you know that the AST will be down for the time being and no one will be able to access it until we are able to reconfigure it. As many of you have noticed, there have been difficulties in updating the AST this year so that it accurately reflects the most up to date information for your programs. We are working on creating new code and as soon as we have it created, we will be in touch with an update. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and for not being able to give you more advanced notice. We are working as fast as we can to get it back up and running. If your organization currently hosts the AST on your website, we have two courses of action to take:
1. Hide the page that the AST is hosted on until we can provide an updated code
2. Remove the current imbed code and post a notice that a new version of the tool will be available soon.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

The Accelerator Selection Tool is a public resource designed to help social entrepreneurs and impact accelerators more easily navigate the rapidly expanding ecosystem of support organizations. Developed in collaboration with more than 10 organizations—and distributed by a network of partners who provide the tool as a free resource to their community—the Accelerator Selection Tool provides the most comprehensive listing of impact-focused accelerators, incubators, business plan competitions, and fellowship programs in the world.

Did You Know?

It takes an entrepreneur an average of 60 hours to determine to which accelerator programs to apply. The Accelerator Selection Tool simplifies that process and increases the probability of accelerator application success.


Social Entrepreneurs

Impact entrepreneurs spend less time finding the right program to take their idea or venture to the next stage.


Impact accelerators gain industry level data to help make strategic program decisions, such as programmatic areas or geographies in which to expand.


Impact investors gain insight into global trends, new market opportunities, and potential pipeline partners for investable deals.

"Entrepreneurial success is about getting access to the right tools, training, resources, and capital at the right time. The Accelerator Selection Tool is a way to provide just that and to increase the probability of success. That is how we change the world."
