Louisiana’s entrepreneurial ecosystem is flourishing and we invite you to be an integral part of our story. Thanks to a federal grant and lots of great partners including our awesome university, ULL, we had great successes with our first accelerator program, Accelerate Acadiana. Coming together with partners in the healthcare scene including LHC Group, Acadian Ambulance, and Lafayette General we are excited to launch our latest initiative, Accelerate South . A 12 week business commercialization program for those companies ready to grow their businesses.
All companies excepted will be offered up to $50,000 in capital upfront in exchange for 2-10% equity. The cost is free we simply ask is that you allow us to invest financially if we like what we see.
What do we offer? Here are a few highlights:
* Free housing for those traveling from afar
* Over 50 highly successful mentors committed to pour their business minds to your incredible plans.
* Over 200 local and state-wide accredited investors motivated to partner with great founders short and long-term.
* Way cool office space and on-going business training at the Opportunity Machine, one of the most successful incubators in Louisiana.
* Industry connections to executives of mega-companies that we know personally… and who love to hear fresh ideas to expand their businesses.
