Economic inequality is the greatest threat facing the United States today. People in middle-and-lower classes—particularly women, people of color, and young people—have seen their collective wealth shrink by 20 percent in the last several decades. Meanwhile, wealthy families have grown their wealth at record rates. In the pandemic alone, billionaires' fortunes grew by an average of 62 percent.

Uncharted is dedicated to supporting early-stage innovators tackling economic inequality, especially those at the very early stages who have lived experiences. Over the six-week program, selected ventures will receive access to Uncharted’s proprietary curriculum, interactive workshops, and peer support community. At the end of the program, ventures will be prepared to apply to Uncharted’s signature Economic Inequality Initiative, or a similar accelerator program.
