We recently launched the New Profit Accelerator, a new one-year program designed to accelerate the potential of extraordinary female social entrepreneurs and the impact of their organizations. Over the next year, seven female social entrepreneurs will form a cohort and receive insider access to New Profit tools, resources, and networks in addition to a one-time gift of up to $50,000. Sarah Peter, one of our dedicated New Profit donors, funded this program out of a desire to support more female social entrepreneurs who are breaking down barriers to opportunity in America.
