Georgetown-based Halcyon Incubator, an incubator for early-stage social impact entrepreneurs, is welcoming its 11th cohort for an 18-month fellowship.

Eight companies have been selected to scale their businesses with Halcyon’s guidance and resources.

The fellowship is split into two stages. The first is the residency stage, where fellows will get rent-free housing, a $10,000 stipend and access to mentors, advisors and supporters to scale their ventures. This stage will conclude with a final demo day where the entrepreneurs will pitch their ventures to an audience of investors and funders. In the second stage of the program, a 13-month post-residency, entrepreneurs will continue to have free access to Halcyon resources to expand their networks and secure funding.

Here’s a look at the ventures from Halcyon’s latest incubator class:

  • Civic Suds: part laundromat, part community center that equips guests with access to books, computers, and programming that provides actionable information and valued skills.
  • Inobi: a platform that combines software and hardware to streamline public transportation.
  • Doctory: a platform creating access to quality healthcare for underserved people in Pakistan by providing a hotline where anyone can call in and get connected to a doctor right away.
  • OxiWear: maker of an ear-wearable vital monitoring and emergency alert device that warns people when their vitals are out of normal range and contacts 911 to receive help. Check out our feature on founder, Shavini Fernando, that we published during our Women in Tech month.
  • Kaaro Health: a healthcare startup targeting underserved and rural populations using its energy-autonomous clinic-in-a-box system.
  • MiBolsillo: curator of an app that digitizes financial behaviors and tasks to build a financially healthy generation.
  • No Limit Generation: a global platform that can be incorporated into any humanitarian intervention to better protect, support, and heal vulnerable and displaced children.
  • Publiseer: A free platform that lets independent low-income African writers, musicians and filmmakers publish and monetize their creative works. The company also connects users with other publishing partners.
