The Opportunity

Austin creates more middle skill jobs than any other city in the country but we don’t match the people that live here to the jobs that are available. For the region’s economically disadvantaged residents, our ability to address this gap offers a pathway out of poverty.

The Impact Hub Accelerator is an issue-specific, social impact accelerator program.  We take the biggest challenges facing Austin and rally a cohort of teams to make those challenges history.

“69% of HR executives say their inability to attract and retain middle-skills talent frequently affects their firm’s performance.”
