UKACCEL/UACCEL PROGRAM UPDATE

UKAccel/UAccel Graduates December 2020

LAUNCH BLUE'S FIRST UKACCEL/UACCEL GRADUATING COHORT

On December 4, the first innovator cohort graduated from the UKAccel/UAccel accelerator program managed by Launch Blue.

“The first cohort of the UAccel program in partnership with Launch Blue and Kentucky Commercialization Ventures has been an overwhelming success. UAccel’s unique combination of entrepreneurship training, cohort meetings with report-outs, individual coaching sessions, and application assignments provided the framework for teams to fully engage with the program, challenge their assumptions, and conceptualize viable commercialization pathways for their technologies.” --Eric Hartman, associate director, UK Office of Technology Commercialization and coach for the UKAccel/UAccel program.

Congratulations to all the innovators who participated and graduated!
