AccelerateAbility is a disability innovations pre-accelerator lab for enabling early-stage startups to design contextual, usable, and affordable interventions for people with disabilities.
We are offering early to mid-stage innovators the opportunity to receive top-line insights from multisectoral experts from the domains of disability, technology, design, and policy.

You will develop and present refined pitches to a jury of impact investors and technical experts, to be part of the longer acceleration programme run by The Disability Innovations Coalition
You will access top-line learnings on the unique challenges of designing for disability and understand daily living barriers and user-experiences of people with disabilities.
Post lab incubation and piloting opportunities, prototyping support, access to cloud credits, visibility to your product solutions, future funding opportunities, brand affiliations, and ecosystem-wide promotion to winning participants.
