Strong Start Nonprofit Accelerator


Where positive community change begins

Positive change starts out small… often with just the spark of an idea. It requires the work of many hands and the support of strong partners to turn that spark into a transformative force.

Strong Start is an innovative work space and collaborative community
where leading-edge nonprofits come together to make our region a better place.

Within our one-of-a-kind accelerator environment, these organizations find a home for their work, a cohort of like-minded individuals, and professional support from NSC that will allow them to move forward.

  • Have established 501(c)(3) status
