Changemaker Institute Social Venture Accelerator: Applications Open!


Changemaker Institute Social Venture Accelerator: Applications Open!

Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking

The Changemaker Institute (CI)  is a social venture accelerator for graduate students that deepens students’ understanding of social issues, connects them to local mentors and experts, and equips them with entrepreneurial tools to create a social enterprise. 

 We support ideas with strong social or environmental missions and offer students:

  • A framework and process  to deepen one’s understanding of social issues and form partnerships with change agents tackling that issue.
  • Growth in social entrepreneurial skills
  • Business model development skills 
  • Mentorship from Tulane and New Orleans’ social entrepreneurial communities
  • Support from an active international Changemaker Institute alumni network
  • Preparation for applying to funding opportunities at Tulane and beyond

 Participants in CI will meet weekly and on five different Saturdays in the spring from 10 AM-2 PM

(1/11, 2/1, 2/29, 3/14, and 3/28).

 Applications are now open and the deadline is November 1, 2019. Questions? Visit the Changemaker Institute Website or contact Julia Lang @
