About Blue Cypress

Blue Cypress is a family of forward-thinking companies dedicated to empowering the association and non-profit sector. As a pioneering incubator and accelerator, we foster growth through evergreen investments, launching new brands and strengthening existing ones. Leveraging cutting-edge AI and other advanced technologies, we help our companies and entrepreneurs to redefine what’s possible in their respective fields. 


Fueling Innovation to Maximize Social Sector Impact 

Often overlooked by mainstream tech and business, we believe the social sector has the potential of profound, transformational change. At Blue Cypress, we believe when we collaborate with and uplift non-profits, it has a multiplier effect on the world. Social sector enterprises are pillars of knowledge and information the world can benefit from. In an age where content is literally coming from all directions and can often be inaccurate or unvetted, we help amplify non-profits’ vetted knowledge, expertise and impact.

Our focus isn’t just about disruption and innovation; it’s about understanding the unique challenges and opportunities present for this sector.
