The Accelerator

This Accelerator is tailored specifically to companies that have received SBIR funding from the Department of Defense (DoD) as well as a SBIR Phase II award and have developed their technology into a working prototype, but have not been able to transition it into DoD. It focuses on getting their technology into a commercial market by finding investors, strategic partners, or defense or commercial customers. The program will be a blend of preparatory weekly meetings, a month-long residency, and follow-up consultation and will be free for Ohio companies and offered for a small fee for out-of-state companies.
