The second edition of UEIA Accelerator has opened. Social entrepreneurs can submit their project proposals until 3 November.
UEIA, the first European accelerator for technology-based social enterprises, has just opened its II Edition.
The programme lasts 6 months, and includes personalized training and advice from experts from different fields who support UEIA.
This pioneering accelerator aims to promote entrepreneurship, social innovation and technology as a platform for new social projects aiming to become sustainable businesses.
Applications are open until the 3rd of November 2013.
The call is addressed to social entrepreneurs and NGOS who want to help alleviate social problems through sustainable business models that create long-term social impact.
During UEIA’s first edition 9 technological projects with social impact concluded their training and acceleration process. Among them Afables, the first social recommender for home care assistance. It is a web platform that puts in contact home care professionals with the people who need them the most (not only elderly people, but also people living in temporary or permanent dependence)in a market that usually works in a word-of-mouth basis.
UEIA’s founding team is made of a group of professionals based in Madrid who are passionate about entrepreneurship and social action and have decided to apply their experience to NGOs, accelerators, investment funds, entrepreneurial training and cooperation.
