XLerateHealth, UK Innovate announce new initiative to develop tools for life science, health entrepreneurs

Thanks to initial funding from a $3.25 million federal grant, XLerateHealth, a national healthcare accelerator based in Louisville, KY, will develop and launch a suite of experience-based entrepreneurship and commercialization training tools to address the needs of academic institutions across the Southeast U.S., including faculty, researchers, innovators and students.

XLerateHealth will partner with the University of Kentucky through UK Innovate, the institution’s tech transfer organization, on the effort that expands a collaboration dating back to 2018. That effort, also funded by the National Institutes of Health, is focused on increasing the commercialization of promising life science and healthcare innovations in 25 academic institutions across the Southeast.
