An Impact Accelerator is a special workshop designed to help nonprofits clarify the impact they are working to achieve. This spring, hundreds of organizations took part in Accelerators. They each developed a clearer impact focus and identified social innovation approaches they could leverage to achieve and accelerate their impact. We’re pleased to be offering a new round of Impact Accelerators this fall!

Santropol Roulant had been active in Montreal neighbourhoods for 17 years when the executive team engaged in the Innoweave Impact and Strategic Clarity process.

At the end of the process in the following year, 2014, Pier Liné who is now Executive Director of Santropol Roulant provided us with his first impressions of how the organization was affected by the Impact and Strategic Clarity process. These effects continue to be felt today as they continue to unfold throughout the organization.
