The Accelerator ecosystem

A unique mix of entrepreneurial support and peer-to-peer collaboration

Walk the halls, ride the elevators, greet your neighbors and you’ll soon realize that when you’re a part of the  Accelerator, you’re part of something bigger and even more valuable than a cool, new location for your business. It won’t be long until you meet people just like you – entrepreneurs, industry specialists, small business owners, to name a few. This ecosystem, as we like to call it, is the intangible value of the Accelerator.  Within our walls, we house our programs, partner organizations, several on-site resource providers and a network of program graduates. This has created a community of like-minded individuals, helping each other, mentoring and thriving in an environment based on collaboration and commonalities.
