XLerator Network

The Southeast XLerator Networkis one of four IDeA State Regions to receive a National Institute of Health STTR award to create a Regional Technology Transfer Accelerator Hub. The Southeast IDeA States region includes six states (KY, WV, SC, AR, MS, LA) plus Puerto Rico and includes 24 academic institutional partners. XLerateHealthis the SBC recipient of this grant and the University of Kentucky is the Lead Academic Partner.

The goal of the networked “Hub” is to help move scientific discoveries and technologies out of the lab and into the market and increase SBIR funding to this typically underserved region.  The Hub will facilitate engagement by building a number of online resources that faculty, students, and researchers can access to learn about how to think about commercializing their technologies and be better prepared to successfully write and receive SBIR funding.
