Welcome to the CivicXcel early call for applications.
Civic Hall Labs' CivicXcel program is a locally-focused, part-time ideas accelerator for innovators tackling civic and social issues with digital technology interventions. Understanding the challenges faced by innovators from different backgrounds and the difficulty of breaking into cross-sector work, CivicXcel is designed to overcome these challenges.
Unlike many traditional accelerator programs, CivicXcel is a six-month, part-time program designed for civically engaged professionals looking to further their good ideas and gain skills in design thinking, prototyping, startup methods, and the development of digital technology.
Launching from the robust innovation community at New York City’s Civic Hall, Civic Hall Labs will bring together its own rigorous methodology for equitable design and development together with proven models from the early-stage accelerator tradition to create CivicXcel.
