SEED Lab is an 8-month pre-accelerator for early-stage social entrepreneurs. Developed in partnership with the University of California Riverside Extension, it aims to tap the deep reservoir of unrecognized talent within marginalized and under-served communities and support their efforts to identify and develop pioneering paths out of inherited problems that have buried and muffled those voices.
The program is designed to support the implementation of visionary ideas into similarly powerful tools to generate social impact, deepen civic engagement, and bring about empowerment and sustainable change.
