For the third year, Apple is reopening its Impact Accelerator program to help Black, Indigenous, and Hispanic/Latino entrepreneurs in green industries.
For 2023, Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy, and social initiatives, tweeted that the newest Impact Accelerator program is open. Apple will receive applications until May 1.
Companies need to be headquartered in the US to be eligible and be in the environmental industry. They must also be owned, operated, and controlled by at least 51% African American, Hispanic/Latino American, or Indigenous Americans.
Companies with inventive environmental solutions, applications, or methods will receive preference. In particular, priority goes to companies in late-stage development or have reached commercial-scale deployment or those that can contribute to one or more of Apple’s environmental priority areas.
