Positive Planet US Launches Second Accelerator Hub Program

The program intends to help underserved women become successful entrepreneurs. Applications are open until June 9.

Positive Planet US, a nonprofit that aims to address economic, social and ecological inequity through entrepreneurship, is launching its second “Accelerator Hub” program. Above all, the program intends to help minority women in the U.S. kickstart and grow a business. The company will select 25 startup founders to participate in this intensive 10-week program. The program is supported by project partner Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, digital transformation technology and engineering services. Genpact, a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, is also a supporter.

An accelerator program that enhances opportunity

The Accelerator Hub includes weekly coaching sessions for small business owners. These sessions serve as a guide to develop skills to create and master business plans. The sessions also provide a knowledge base for startups, finance, sales and marketing. Participants will get access to special bonus sessions presented by key industry experts from exclusive partnerships with Positive Planet US. Positive Planet’s Accelerator program aims to improve social and digital inclusion for minority women in the United States. It will achieve this by enhancing their opportunities and supporting their entrepreneurial success.

Combining the drive of visionary women with our team of Capgemini and Genpact experts, our accelerator program will bring participants’ businesses to the next level, and set them on a course to success not just for themselves, but also for their community.

Applications are now open until June 9 to minority women entrepreneurs who have viable business ideas that would contribute to positive economic, social, environmental or political change. To apply to the program today, go to
