The SELL Accelerator is a 12-week program designed to help student-run social ventures scale their businesses.

At the beginning of each semester, the Accelerator Fellowship opens an application to all UT students– any student-founded social venture team at UT is welcome to apply to join the SELL family!

Each social venture accepted into the SELL Accelerator will be paired with an industry mentor to support them throughout their time in the fellowship.

Like the first two stages of SELL Fellowship, the Accelerator is entirely student-run. The workshops, events, and curriculum are put together by the SELL Board– a team of past fellows, entrepreneurs, and social impact-driven individuals.

The SELL Accelerator curriculum is carefully curated by the SELL Board alongside professionals in the impact space. Each semester, the curriculum will change based on the needs of the accepted ventures.

All ventures accepted into the Accelerator will have the opportunity to present their products and/or services at Demo Day for the chance to earn funding.

Accelerator Demo Day

An opportunity to witness our Accelerator Fellows in action!

Join us for a showcase of five social enterprises pitching their impactful ventures! These social entrepreneurs and their teams have been working with the Social Entrepreneurship Learning Lab (SELL) Accelerator for 12 weeks to prepare for their pitch.

The intensive curriculum, personalized mentorship, and structured goals have helped these students take their ideas for social good to make a real impact on their communities.
