NEXUS has launched its inaugural NEXUS Impact Accelerator to support incredible social entrepreneurs within our community who are working on critical global challenges. The cohort will run twice a year, our USA Summit (early spring) to our Global Summit (summer) and our Global Summit to our USA Summit.
Our inaugural cohort was selected after a highly competitive application process due to their talents, progress to date, and vision for impact. They represent the spirit of the NEXUS Community.
The entrepreneurs are working on a wide variety of critical challenges including regrowing coral in labs to save reefs, increasing health equity and inclusion in media, using robotics to better connect the elderly and immobile into society, using a plant based technology to lock beaches and prevent coastal erosion and mapping the brain to solve Parkinson’s Disease.
NEXUS HQ interviewed each of the Fellows to learn more about their motivations for starting a company, their aspirations for growth, and the challenges they face during the era of COVID-19.
Let’s mobilize the incredible talents, resources, influence and access of our NEXUS Community to support our amazing fellows. We invite you to join us! If you are interested in serving as a mentor.
Interested in applying for the next cohort beginning August 2020?
