Wow, NeedsList was chosen to be part of another global accelerator

The online platform connecting refugee aid workers with people who want to donate was a part of the MassChallenge 2017 accelerator last month, and it just joined the three-month Katapult accelerator in Norway.

It’d be an understatement to say that it’s been a busy couple of months for NeedsList, the currently-in-beta online startup that connects refugee aid workers around the world with people who want to donate much-needed supplies and finances.

Let’s recap:

The Philly-founded startup from cofounders Natasha Freidus and Amanda Levinson had its beta launch during a citywide celebration commencing World Refugee Day in June. It was one of two startups that won $25,000 after its time with the 12-week fintech accelerator program from Ben Franklin Technology Partners and Village Capital. And the NeedsList cofounders spent last month in France and Switzerland with other startups from around the world for MassChallenge’s 2017 accelerator program.

Well, the Philly Geek Awards nominee for Impact Org of the Year ain’t showing any signs of stopping anytime soon — NeedsList was one of 12 startups from across the world accepted into Norway’s Katapult accelerator program, which is focused on taking in teams that are using “exponential technology” to bring about positive impact.

NeedsList was one of two U.S.-based startups accepted into the three-month program, which started July 31. Levinson and Freidus are currently in Oslo getting things started.
