ApplicationS OPEN FOR 2019

In this last year we've served more than 50 founders, and with the help of our incredibly talented mentor network we've evolved our curriculum from a series of workshops into an intimate 16-week cohort experience. We've expanded beyond our flagship location in Hyde Park to our first hosted location in San Antonio at Impact Guild. In 2019 we'll be hosting cohorts in locations around Austin, and we're also offering online cohorts for those in other areas of the country.


2018 Cohort locations 

We embed in spaces that are focused on building community. From co-working communities to hostels, bars and bookstores, we've found that our best partners are those who share our commitment to building authentic connections between innovators and creators.

THE UN.Inc ONLINE

The Un.Incubator is based in Austin, TX where we run cohorts in sponsored locations around the city. After a year of building this business and working with more than 50 founders, it's time to reach beyond Austin to the changemakers around the country. We're excited to launch the new online cohort program.

who is the un.incubator for?

The Un.Incubator is designed for early stage founders from all sectors and all backgrounds. What they share is the experience of not fitting in the culture or spaces they have traveled. And a desire to take that struggle and use it to fuel change. They are educators, artists, musicians, designers and technologists, makers. Healers, writers, community organizers, storytellers and politicians. They are all ages, genders, ethnicities and sexualities. They are at a crossroads in their life, and they are ready to change some shit, for good.


Applications open for 2019


The online Cohort Experience

Cost: $250/Month (3 months)
Need a scholarship? Let us know when you apply.

Grab a glass of wine (or beer!), open your laptop and join us each week for a real, raw, accountable conversation. Whether you're wondering if it's time to take your passion and use it to make an impact or you've already launched a business and need the support to bring it to sustainability, the cohort experience meets you where you're at.

The Un.Incubator blends social impact business expertise with peer support and co-creation to help you make the change you want to see in your community while also helping you explore making making the income you need to sustain.

The online cohort meets once a week, on google hangouts. We'll delve into your goals for the quarter, and you'll pursue them weekly. We'll guide you from ideation to identity, then into audience development and branding and before the quarter is up you'll be launching your MVP. We bring a range of guest speakers to the conversation, providing you with the chance to ask applicable questions about your venture. You'll leave with clarity about your next steps, and new co-creators for the journey.
