The Watson Summer Accelerator is a program for college students, recent graduates, and gap-year students with an early-stage social venture/project and a passion for social impact.
During the 5-week program, a cohort of next generation innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs from across the globe convene in Boulder, Colorado, to tackle complex problems and forge lives and careers of impact. From climate change to social justice and from poverty to access to quality education, students selected to the Watson Summer Accelerator leverage training, mentorship, and community to accelerate their ventures and unleash a lifetime of impact.
Venture Founder Track– The Venture Founder track is for students who are founders or co-founders of a venture or project. The Venture Founder may collaborate with a Free Agent track student attending the same cohort.
Free Agent Track– The Free Agent track is for students looking to join a venture or project and are prepared to contribute in significant ways to the team. Free Agents join a Venture Founder’s team at the beginning of the cohort.
