Deadline: October 14, 2022
The 2023 Accountability Incubator is looking for the very best ideas from young people for accountability, participation, and open government. The Incubator is Accountability Lab’s flagship program for young change-makers to build sustainable, effective tools for change.
This year we are looking for ideas under the theme of “Global Challenges, Local Solutions”. Your project would need to fall under one of four sub-themes including participation, inclusion, digital governance, or environmental accountability.
The Incubator provides a non-prescriptive, yet supportive environment for creative, enterprising individuals who bring innovative ideas to inspire accountability in their communities.
- Selected “accountapreneurs” receive a year of hands-on, comprehensive support including training and knowledge-building, mentoring, network building, and media outreach support.
- Applicants applying to the program must be residents of one of the eligible countries – Kenya, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Uganda, or Zimbabwe.
- Women, people with disabilities, and other minority groups are encouraged to apply.
All applicants will be evaluated by the Incubator staff and our mentorship board based on the questions below and a subsequent interview for short-listed candidates. The submission of a 1-minute video is optional but advisable to strengthen your application.
