Duke University

Duke Students: The Accelerator provides students opportunities to learn from and work with social entrepreneurs on the front lines of global social issues. Potential opportunities may include participating in our Student Advisory Group, upcoming events on campus, research projects, and internships. Contact us to learn more.

Duke Faculty & Staff: If you have research or other interests in MHH innovation specifically, or innovation in the field of social entrepreneurship more generally. Contact us to learn more.

Be A Mentor

Through the Accelerator, our social entrepreneurs will have access to a multitude of diverse resources, including UNICEF subject matter experts, Duke University faculty and students, monthly capacity building webinars, and a week-long residency at Duke’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative in the heart of Durham’s innovation district. We seek to create an ecosystem of support to provide social entrepreneurs with the mentorship, advice, training, and funding necessary to scale their impact. Do you want to become an integral part of the DUIA network and provide invaluable insights, experience, and expertise to the social entrepreneurs they work with throughout the life of the cohort?
