This month, the UpStart Change Accelerator launches in the Bay Area! Change Accelerators bring together exclusive cohorts of professionals to grow their impact as Jewish change agents. Learn more below.
This intensive program for intrapreneurs – change-makers within established institutions – equips participants with practical skills to identify and launch bold initiatives that meet their constituents’ evolving needs. As they shape their idea, they are supported by a community of peers, as well as expert coaches.
The UpStart Change Accelerator (formerly Innovation Fellowship) is a program in its second year that supports intrapreneurs looking to bring design thinking tools to their organizations. Funding for this program is generously provided by our funding partners, and there is no charge to participating organizations.
UpStart Change Accelerator Fellows:
“Participating in this program has provided me along with senior leadership at JUF, the opportunity to collaborate and really think through a specific challenge in a methodical way.” – Cohort 1 Fellow
“[This work] brought me back to focusing on our students’ needs instead of other factors like finances, program history, etc…” – Cohort 1 Fellow
“I’m very satisfied with my staff’s participation! The step-by-step guidance and encouragement, along with timelines, kept her and our team accountable and moving forward.” – Supervisor of Cohort 1 Fellow
Applications to the Bay Area Change Accelerator are now open through October 25, 2019 at 2:00 PM PT.
All workshops will be held in UpStart’s Oakland office at 1111 Broadway (next to 12th st BART) with the exception of the Prototyping event which is location TBD.
