The Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) is partnering with Australian Progress and philanthropists to launch a national search for the first six initiatives or founders to benefit from Progress Labs – an accelerator designed to support new and nimble movements for social good. Australian Progress, with ACOSS and over 125 people who participated in the crowdfunder earlier this year, will together support a new generation of organisations tackling social welfare issues like economic inequality and racial injustice.

Progress Labs is a structured program that provides:

  • Pitch and fundraising support,
  • Office space,
  • Admin, governance, legal and accounting assistance,
  • Design, technology, and creative partnerships,
  • Hands-on mentorship, connections, and strategic advice, and
  • A lovely community of people at a similar to stage in their ventures to work alongside.

The goal is to help founders hone their strategy and story, raise the funding they need to focus on their projects – and achieve their vision, faster.

Applications close: 30 November 2017.
