There has been a proliferation of accelerators across the globe, and now across various "verticals" like energy, finance, hardware, etc.
But there is another emergent theme of mission-driven accelerators who marry a public purpose - such as media, education, environment - with a core entrepreneurial structure that syncs up with the broader movement.
In this conversation the founding team of Matter (http://www.matter.vc) invite others in the space to join a discussion of how these experiments are faring, the hypotheses and philosophies that guide them, and the lessons learned so far.
Matter itself is a relatively new (launched in December 2012) accelerator based in San Francisco, supporting media entrepreneurs who are building a more informed, connected and empowered society.
While we will discuss Matter the conversation is intended to be inclusive of other similar efforts, and the perspectives of entrepreneurs and investors in attendance.
