SEA CHANGE is a collaborative initiative that provides coaching, connections and capital to people who have big ideas to improve their community.

OUR MISSION is to connect resources, funders, innovators, and mentors to accelerate ideas from concept to successful social enterprise across the state of Ohio.

The SEA Change accelerator is a 14-week online course supplemented by weekly in-person gatherings to share in learning across the cohort. Participants will also gain access to mentors across a wide variety of disciplines and issue areas. The accelerator will culminate in a Pitch Day where up to $100,000 in cash and prizes will be invested in top social enterprises that completed the program.

We plan to select up to 15 participants that are looking to start an enterprise with a social mission. These may come from for-profit, not-for-profit, or yet-to-be-determined sectors of business.
