Headstream, a San Francisco-based tech incubation project of SecondMuse, an impact and innovation company, is conducting its second Accelerator program, which will give grants to entrepreneurs with innovative ideas about how to improve youth digital experience — with a special emphasis on LGBTQs and other minority groups. Accelerator 2 will be accepting online applications here through November 6. “There is a pool of funding. They’ll each get up to $30,000 after we make the selection,” David Ball, a straight ally who is a manager at Headstream, told the Bay Area Reporter in a recent interview. “This has opened the types of capital and innovation we need. It has allowed us to put youth-centered solutions and impact-centered solutions at the forefront of our work and has allowed us to work more closely with young people than before. Ball said Headstream is looking for ideas that make the digital and social media world a better and more representative place.
