Accelerate Long Island
Seed Fund Portfolio
The Accelerate Long Island Seed Fund was established by a $500,000 grant from New York State Empire State Development awarded by the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council. The Accelerate Long Island Seed Fund made grants to ten portfolio companies in the biotech and energy sectors and those grants were matched by the Long Island Emerging Technologies Fund (LIETF), which includes Topspin Partners and Jove Equity Partners. The Accelerate Long Island Seed Fund was designed as very early stage funding for companies that are commercializing technologies and the portfolio has been very successful in securing follow-on funding. This fund is now closed. For information on applying to Accelerate New York Seed Fund, which also focuses on early-stage technologies, please visit www.ANYSeedFund.com.
