A lifetime of impact begins.

The Watson Semester Accelerator (Hybrid Format) is a program for college students, recent graduates, and gap-year students with an early-stage venture/project and a passion for impact.

During the 4-month program, a cohort of next generation innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs from across the globe convene in-person and virtually to tackle complex problems and forge lives and careers of impact. From climate change to social justice and from poverty to access to quality education, students selected to the hybrid Watson Semester Accelerator leverage training, mentorship, and community to accelerate their ventures and unleash a lifetime of impact.
