We are so proud to announce that XLerateHealth was just named a winner of the US Small Business Administration’s Growth Accelerator Fund Competition! This award was established in 2014 “as a way to make new connections and strengthen existing bonds within America’s small business support network, bringing entrepreneurs and innovators together and connecting them with local and national resources that support small business job creation and growth.” This is the third consecutive year that XLerateHealth has earned this honor.
According to the US SBA, “Applications were judged by more than 100 experts with entrepreneurial, investment, startup, economic development, capital formation and academic backgrounds from both the public and private sector. The first panel of judges reviewed over 400 applications and presentations and established a pool of 200 highly qualified finalists. The second panels evaluated the finalists’ presentations and pitch videos and selected the 68 winners.”
We look forward to putting the $50,000 cash prize to good use as we continue mentoring our fourth startup cohort. Congratulations to the 67 other Growth Accelerator Fund Competition winners, especially Chef Space, a kitchen incubator headquartered in our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky!
