The Social Entrepreneurship Accelerator at Duke

Launched in 2012, the Social Entrepreneurship Accelerator at Duke (SEAD) is a USAID-funded global health program with partners within and outside Duke University, including Innovations in Healthcare. SEAD mobilizes a community of practitioners, investors, policymakers, faculty, staff, and students to identify, assess, build the capacity of, and scale health and healthcare enterprises around the world (focused now on India and East Africa).

Through SEAD, a subset of Innovations in Healthcare innovators have the opportunity to participate in a rigorous program of engagement and evaluation designed to help them scale their impact.
