Monthly Accelerator Weekends:

Our Accelerator weekends are action-packed. Our goal is to provide at least one Accelerator Weekend in each WARD of DC throughout the year. We start on Friday evening and finish on Sunday with a final pitch competition to select entrepreneurs that will be finalists for the annual Street Entrepreneur Pitch Competition.

We are looking for educators, lecturers, and mentors to volunteer by teaching our Street Entrepreneurs a specific skill set related to the fundamentals of business. You can volunteer and attend for your session or welcome to attend the entire weekend. As the educator/teacher on your topic, you only need to be present for your portion which can be up to 2 hours.

Each weekend, we will teach skills related to sales, marketing, accounting/finance, taxes, and operations.

Volunteers are asked to provide the tools, materials, and a presentation for their portion through interactive learning. This is the portion where you will be teaching the entrepreneurs during the accelerator weekend.

BRAND AMBASSADORS:
  • You can become a Brand Ambassador after attending and participating in our Accelerator Program Retreat Weekend

Mission Statement

Street Entrepreneurs envisions a grit-based economy where people with talent, drive, and hustle have access to the resources needed to sustainably solve the problems impacting their lives, their communities, and our world.

Description

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we do not profit from the businesses we support. Instead, harness the power of small business founders to create positive change and cultivate equitable communities. We do this by creating access to knowledge, connections, and capital.

What We Do:
Our 2020 accelerator will provide 200 hours of business education, 48 interactive workshops, and 18 Talent Exchange sessions to nearly 1,000 entrepreneurs in every ward of Washington, D.C. The grittiest founders will be selected by their peers to showcase at Street Pitch.

We invest in the human capital of our entrepreneurs by providing a world-class education that is accessible to all.

Our participants most commonly describe our education workshops as hands-on, creative, collaborative, and interactive. Our teachers are subject-matter experts with start-up and small businesses experience. They utilize improvisational comedy, design thinking, and other experiential-learning methodologies to teach topics crucial to starting, operating, and growing a business.

*In exchange for volunteering, you have an opportunity to participate in the Accelerator Weekend. You must still go through the application process*
