Early-stage tech investing is our passion. We love being involved in the first institutional capital round (typically the Series A)—early enough to be able to truly partner with you and materially impact the growth trajectory of your company. We limit the number of investments in each portfolio to ensure adequate capital and partner bandwidth per company to maximize the chances of success across the board. With .406, you do not get one or two partners, you get the resources of our full team—every investment team member touches every company. We are also dogmatic about never investing in competitive companies, so we will be explicitly aligned with you. We invest in companies aiming to disrupt industries that we know extremely well and where we have the networks to truly accelerate company success.

The private-sector firms located at the Park are recruited from three key business sectors — life sciences, advanced engineering and information technology. The Park is located on WMU’s 265-acre Parkview Campus, the home of WMU’s highly regarded College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The proximity to the College and the University’s campuswide commitment to the three areas of focus mean opportunities abound for businesses to interact and partner with the faculty and students of one of the nation’s largest major research universities.

Xlerate Health Economic Development Organization Louisville KY Details

300 E. Market St., Suite 260, Louisville KY, US
email: [email protected]
website: http://www.xleratehealth.com/

XLerateHealth is enterprise-focused and helps early stage healthcare companies build out their commercialization strategy, which includes their intersection with Payers, Providers (hospitals, ACOs, nursing homes, home health and group practices), and customers (employers and/or consumers). XLerateHealth supports the following three types of pre-venture-funded portfolio companies:

Startup companies are very early stage healthcare companies that need more intensive hands-on mentorship and support. They participate in a 13-week intensive accelerator program in XLH’s 3,500- square foot space located in the Nucleus building in Louisville’s downtown Medical Development Research Park. XLH helps these early stage startup companies prepare their product/service for commercialization and connects them with beta site partners in the healthcare eco-system so that the startup companies obtain real-time “customer discovery” feedback from actual potential customers.

Affiliate companies participate in a multi-year virtual incubator (similar to the model pursued by Startup Health in New York). XLH’s portfolio of 27 affiliate companies have already made substantial progress in raising capital, building a customer base, and/or generating revenue. XLH provides mentorship and networking for these Affiliates to support their commercialization and institutional fundraising efforts. In addition, the Affiliate companies often provide mentorship to the startup companies participating in the accelerator’s 13-week on-site program.

“Corporate Lift Outs” are innovative new business opportunities (originating in existing for-profit and not- for-profit corporate entities) that can benefit from being treated in the same way that a start-up business does. XLH works with Lift Out projects (on an intersession basis) through the course of a year to help these potential business opportunities become commercially viable enterprises – utilizing the same lean startup methodology that we use with our startup companies.
