What is Austin+SocialGood?
Austin+SocialGood is the Austin, TX chapter of the Plus Social Good worldwide network which aims to empower individuals around the globe whose work is addressing society’s most pressing issues, whether in a forprofit, forbenefit, or not-for-profit structure.
A+SG is run by a group of community leaders, professionals who donate their time for the betterment of the local Austin community. Want to get involved? It’s easy. Just contact us.
This annual program takes five startups from our pool of applicants and puts those teams through our 6-week Accelerator Program. Teams are coached and mentored by industry professionals over the course of several weeks to present at the A+SG Fast Pitch Event (Oct 7), where the audience and an esteemed panel choose the winner. It’s community-based social good at its best.
Every Fall, we go to you, our friends in the local community, to crowdfund a small seed round for an Austin-based social enterprise. This seed funding can be used for product development, sales, marketing, manufacturing – whatever the startup chooses. We call this the Social Innovators Fund. The fund is award to the winner of the Austin Plus Social Good Fast Pitch.
