Nonprofit impact investor Notley Ventures and Austin startup accelerator Capital Factory are launching a 10,000 square foot coworking space for social startups.
The Center for Social Innovation (not related to the New York and Toronto string of offices) aims to fill a gap for social entrepreneurs by bringing together networks, events, educational institutions and entrepreneurial programs.
The partners offer a network of 800 classes and 1,700 mentors. Notley founder Dan Graham says he wants to see Austin become the next hub for social innovation.
Techstars made Austin the base for its new social impact accelerator in October.
