Apply for the July 2014 Accelerator!

Posted on Jul 2, 2014 in Accelerator

GWOBites, technologists, and humanitarians,

We are exceptionally pleased to announce that our 6 month Accelerator for Humanitarian Projects is now accepting applications for the next round! Make sure to have your application in by July 31st 2014 to qualify.


What is the Accelerator for Humanitarian Projects?
Geeks Without Bounds takes teams through a process of 6 months of acceleration which builds upon the best parts of current humanitarian response, and then feeds back into that community. Every two weeks, teams meet with subject matter expert mentors in various fields to help improve the efficiency, usefulness, and long-term impact of the team’s project. Our goal is to create better tools and the transition necessary to integrate them more effectively into both global response awareness and affected populations.

How do I apply?
Submit a five minute video about your intended project, a business plan, and any other relevant contextual information. Once submitted, our advisory board reviews each application and selects the ones we feel most closely align with the shared goals of humanitarian response and have the potential for the greatest impact.
