Who We Are
A foundation empowering entrepreneurs
Accelerate DFW Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was formed in 1999 to create and implement programs and services that would significantly impact economic growth in Fort Worth. Helping entrepreneurs and advocating for the importance of entrepreneurship in our community, nineteen years later, we've accomplished some amazing results. 80% of our incubator program graduates are still running very successful businesses today.
What drives our organization
We connect dedicated entrepreneurs in the DFW area to the resources they need to develop, launch & grow their business. We build relationships that generate tangible outcomes.
What We Do
the foundation's approach:
Incubate, Create, and inspire
Accelerate DFW fosters connections to subject matter experts, fellow entrepreneurs, and other startup gurus to help you reach your objective as quickly as possible.
We scour the private sector and entrepreneurial communities to find the authorities who have been there, done that with the ability to share it effectively. Our workshops are designed so you walk out the door with relevant action items you can implement immediately.
Through local entrepreneurs success stories, we help spread the wisdom, anecdotes, and missteps of entrepreneurs in the trenches so that others can learn and benefit.
