ImpactAlpha, November 16 — The Madison, Wis.-based gBeta Social Impact’s virtual accelerator is supporting 10 founders addressing equity in education and criminal justice reform. Its Fall 2020 cohort includes The Way Out, which has designed an “anti-bias” employment platform to connect the formerly incarcerated with jobs; bail insurance venture Vonzella; school district transportation provider Go Together; and Beereaders, which has developed an online program to help Spanish speaking students boost English comprehension. 

The American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact is sponsoring the program. It has also backed Village Capital’s “justice tech” initiatives (see, “’Justice tech’ entrepreneurs look to disrupt the cycle of recidivism”).
