Accelerating STEAM Non-Profits
in Orange County
Octane’s Non-Profit Accelerator
We provide non-profits with the tools they need to expand their impact in the community, specifically those non-profits that serve under-represented people in STEAM and healthcare. By adapting Octane’s award-winning LaunchPad SBDC evaluation process, non-profits receive a similar evaluation of their organization and expert advice. The graduates of the Non-Profit Accelerator emerge more empowered and capable of improving the lives and communities of the people they serve.
The Non-Profit Accelerator is made possible by a generous grant from Edwards Lifesciences Foundation.
2023 Fall Cohort
The purpose of the Non-Profit Accelerator is to help non-profit organizations optimize their resources, build capacity and improve sustainability.
By providing opportunities, expertise, and coaching, we believe that Non-Profits will create more impact in the local community. The three goals we are focusing on are:
Increasing Community Reach
Support this initiative by volunteering to serve as a subject matter expert.
Increasing Grants & Funding
The Non-Profit Accelerator program helps non-profits prepare more effective strategies for grants and funding.
We believe that people and communities are better served when non-profits and their missions are capable of reliably delivering their services. The Non-Profit Accelerator experience helps these organizations build the capacity and effectiveness necessary to achieve long-term sustainability.
