Meet the nine companies we are working with to make affordability a reality.
The company offers a financial path for home-buyers to become mortgage-ready within three to six months, including an injection of capital in the form of shared equity to resolve credit, debt and savings hurdles, as well as a personalized playbook to provide step-by-step instructions, encourage progress and track milestones. For this accelerator they would like to run a pilot test and speak openly about finances with potential customers.
Blue Zero improves the quality of homes and living to create environmentally sustainable communities. Our homes are engineered and designed to provide families with the familiarity and comfort of traditional homes with added sustainable and renewable energy resources. Within the accelerator, they’re striving to build a circular community here within Central Texas. They’d like to speak with people who have experience developing communities in central Texas, legal experts around land laws and purchasing land.
As an organization, they are striving to build an affordability community living for Baby Boomers, with an additional community maker space in the area. They’re currently working on putting together a proposal for a piece of land and to move forward with the development.
We empower underserved communities to transform cities through equity-centered design and social entrepreneurship. By the end of the accelerator, they are striving to build and run a pilot program, become better connected to the underserved communities in Austin, and determine their value proposition.
The Tiny Heights is a neighborhood of homes that are under a 1,000 sqft. We help to lower the barrier of entry to homeownership utilizing tiny homes. Within their accelerator experience, they are working to purchase the land in Houston and determine the best legal structure for the land.
