About Civic Accelerator

Civic Accelerator is a partnership between Point of Light and Village Capital Points of Light focused on civic ventures - enterprises that inspire, equip and mobilize people to create positive change. The accelerator helps social entrepreneurs launch successful solutions to intractable problems by capitalizing on three trends: Social Entrepreneurship + Civic Engagement + Accelerator Models. Each team will receive an initial investment (averaging $10,000 each), plus two promising ventures will receive larger seed investment (usually not more than $50,000 each) selected by the entrepreneurs themselves.

Acumen acquires Civic Accelerator to expand talent push

Jul 1, 2019

Photo credit: Hypepotamus   ImpactAlpha, July 1 – In a transfer among nonprofit impact investing firms, Acumen acquired the team and intellectual property of the “CivicX” social impact accelerator from Atlanta-based Points of Light. CivicX was founded in 2013 with support from PwC Charitable Foundation and Starbucks Foundation and has graduated 146 for-profit and nonprofit early-stage social ventures and invested more than $1 million. It was a pioneer in the growing “civic tech” space. Acumen is seeking to strengthen its ‘+Acumen’ leadership academy, which has provided online training to a half-million students and practitioners in 193 countries, Acumen’s Jo-Ann Tan tells ImpactAlpha. In the past year, +Acumen has designed and executed a handful of accelerator programs, including a nonprofit food recovery program with ReFED and Walmart; a data and technology earned-income accelerator with Open Society Foundations; and a program supporting plastic waste entrepreneurs with Unilever. +Acumen will bring CivicX’s offline curriculum online, and make it available globally. Traditional startups have broad access to accelerator programs, says Tan. The CivicX acquisition is an effort to “expand access to social impact curriculum.”
