Equipping dreamers for Social Impact
At the Un.Incubator we're passionate about equipping a diverse range of founders with the resources they need to have a life-long career in impact. We work in collaboration with locally owned businesses, venues, universities and creative industry groups to support new founders in pursuit of their own business. We provide the structure, mentorship, startup framework and safe space for them to experiment, fail, iterate and build a unique venture designed around their passion and skill.
OUR COMMITMENT TO IMPACT STARTS HERE
Since we launched we've been committed to providing opportunities to as many founders as we can. In 2017 we provided scholarships to 11 founders of the 50 we served.

the impact is growing
What results have we seen in our first year? It's too early to define success metrics, but plan to as we grow. Our focus in this season is on the quality and replicability of our program. The 50+ Un.Alums who have completed our program have gone on to launch local ventures from impact focused production companies to nonprofits and social enterprises in a range of industries including consumer products, travel, film, live performance and music. They now have the framework they need for startup iteration and scrappy marketing, they are embedded in their community and through their ventures they're activating their skill and talent to give back and empower others.
