1909 is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the holistic growth of creators in Palm Beach County, offering members access to a one-of-a-kind, collaborative community, workspace and mentorship. Once a year, 1909 opens applications to their Accelerator Program, an intensive six month program designed to help founders from all backgrounds develop their ideas into successful businesses. Participants partake in immersive activities and workshops designed to help founders gain clarity on personal and professional intentions while learning business fundamentals.


1909 seeks out founders for their Accelerator Program who want to take their business to the next level. During the application process, they look for entrepreneurs who have an early-stage idea and are ready to commit to growing their businesses. They generally accept 10-15 applicants every year, and because 1909 invests so much into this free program, they look to attract the most dedicated and best talent in Palm Beach County. Therefore, it was important for 1909 to secure media coverage to adequately get the word out and maximize the number of applicants to the program.


BlueIvy Communications’ PR team was able to secure multiple TV appearances for 1909’s founders and graduates of their previous Accelerator Programs to promote the program during the open application timeline.

BlueIvy Communications secured a “Non-profit Spotlight” in the Palm Beach Post discussing 1909 and the Accelerator Program.
