Red Bull is expanding its social enterprise accelerator to the U.S.

The company, best known for its energy drinks, launched its first program in South Africa in 2014, expanded to Brazil, and now has supported more than 100 social entrepreneurs through its Amaphiko Academy.

The academy this year will run its first program in the U.S., in Baltimore, an emerging social innovation hub, where it will enroll 15 to 20 U.S.-based social entrepreneurs for a 10-day residency program, followed by an 18-month incubation.

Applications will be accepted through April for the August program.
