    Description:

    Accelerate Long Island was founded in 2011 to foster the development of an innovation-based economy on Long Island. Accelerate Long Island seeks to invest in start-up companies in three sectors: Information Technology, Biotech/life sciences, and Energy. Accelerate Long Island received a $500,000 grant to start a seed fund that invests up to $50,000 in early stage companies in the form of grants. This is matched by $500,000 from the Long Island Emerging Technologies Fund, a partnership of venture capitalists. Accelerate Assist is a free mentorship program for early stage high-tech startup companies. Accelerate Assist pairs startups with an entrepreneur-in-residence to develop a set of milestones for the company over a three to sixth month period. Completion of the Accelerate Assist program may result in an opportunity to pitch to the Accelerate Long Island Seed Fund or connections with other early stage funding sources.
