Restart Accelerator

Apply Now >>


A focused Accelerator will fast track innovative companies to recover our region’s small businesses from the COVID-19 Pandemic. Currently, the best way to facilitate successful business restart and growth is to create a Business Accelerator focused on identifying-promoting-nurturing companies with technology, products, and services that will help local small businesses adapt to the new economic environment and recover from the crisis.


Who Should Apply?

Small businesses located in the Appalachian Highlands Region that have seen a negative impact on their business related to COVID-19.

Through the ‘Restart Accelerator,’ we are looking to accelerate the growth of innovative companies who have solutions that can immediately be implemented to help our small businesses adjust to the new economic environment.
