Attention City Planners, Economic Developers and Community Leaders!  A training program to help you build a technology accelerator and create wealth for your community.
There is no standard formula community leaders can use to build an effective accelerator program. Because each community has unique resources it can tap, we want to make sure the accelerator model a community uses will take advantage of those resources.
