Visible Connect Year 2: Introducing the Next Group of Game-Changing Nonprofit Partners
Visible was created to leverage mobile technology in a new way and use it to create meaningful connections. Because of this mission, we formed Visible Connect, our social good initiative.
Over the past year, we have had the honor of welcoming our first cohort of rock star nonprofits who are using mobile technology to create change in communities across the country. In the first year of Visible Connect, nine nonprofit partners had a positive impact on over 4 million lives across the U.S. and attracted more than $2 million in funding since being a part of our accelerator. We continue to work with, support, and cheer on our alumni as they move beyond the Visible Connect program.
Today, we’re proud to announce a new set of six nonprofit organizations that were carefully selected to participate in the 2019 Visible Connect accelerator program. Over the next nine months, Visible and our partners at Uncharted will work alongside these game-changing entrepreneurs to help them elevate their organizations and connect them with the resources, services, expertise, and relationships they need to continue driving change.
Get to know our newest Visible Connect cohort:
Empower Work is building a future where every person is supported, valued, and empowered at work. They provide immediate, confidential support — emotional and tactical — for tough work situations via SMS.
Good Call protects the rights of marginalized communities by providing immediate access to legal support in case of arrest.
LitLab accelerates underserved children’s learning to narrow the opportunity gap. Their products revolutionize the way ELL families ensure their children’s academic and lifelong success.

UPchieve is a free, online platform that connects low-income students with live tutors any time they need it.
WeThrive equips underestimated youth to own their future by helping teachers increase classroom engagement, real-world learning and future-readiness by creating student-run companies, earning real revenues.
In addition to offering executive mentorship through Visible’s network of experts with deep business expertise, the Visible Connect Accelerator Program awards a $15,000 financial grant and free mobile devices with one year of Visible service to each nonprofit selected.
Ultimately, through these nonprofits, technology will play a role in everything from helping students succeed in the classroom, ensuring veterans can find support in times of need and providing individuals with access to immediate legal help.
On behalf of the Uncharted and Visible teams, we are so excited to introduce our second Visible Connect cohort and cannot wait to see how they continue to drive positive change for all of us. Learn more here.
