The Blue Dove Foundation is Selected for the UpStart National Entrepreneur Sprint
ATLANTA – The UpStart National Entrepreneur Sprint guides promising startups in developing proof-of-concept—a way of demonstrating that our initiative works and meets a need in Jewish life. As a member of the Entrepreneur Sprint, the Blue Dove Foundation will receive the training and resources needed to scale our impact.
The Blue Dove Foundation was selected from a pool of more than 80 highly-qualified applicants, early- and growth-stage ventures representing a diverse array of initiatives, including supporting LGBTQ teens in the Orthodox community, using the seder ritual to build interfaith alliances, and facilitating communal conversations through the arts. These ventures are crucial to the landscape of Jewish offerings, as they often serve as the only connection point to Jewish life for individuals seeking alternatives to more traditional institutions.
The selected ventures will also benefit from the urgent COVID-19 crisis resiliency training and resources offered to UpStart’s broader Venture Network.
The Blue Dove Foundation is excited to join the other selected organizations in the national sprint who are redesigning the experience and expression of Jewish life!
