About This Program

With support from the Comcast NBCUniversal, 2Gether-International is launching an accelerator focused on founders with disabilities of early-stage, technology-based startups

‍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 5-10 disabled founders will be competing for $10K seed funding.

Since the launch of 2Gether International (2GI’s) first accelerator in 2019, more than 69 startups have participated, and these businesses have collectively raised over $41 million dollars in funding from investment, revenues and acquisitions from outside investors. 2GI network's international community consists of over 600 founders with disabilities from 15 countries world-wide.

What Are We Looking For?
