About this Program
Through a federal $700K EDA grant and $700K local match program, Accelerate Acadiana is a joint effort with several large federal, public, academic, and private entities.
We are looking for founders who have a killer drive toward the idea that they are looking to do, as well as founders that show that they can execute.
Lafayette is an amazing place to live, work, and play (google us!) plus our team of mentors are ready to help you commercialize your business - preferably in our region and aligned with our industry clusters. The Acadiana Angels are ready to invest in your business short and long term if both parties see the fit.
