How Next Stage Acceleration Works

Our Process

We identify, invest and incubate emerging technology ventures with enterprise and government partners. We play a hands-on role in accelerating venture growth with internal pilots, channel partnerships, market support, and co-development opportunities with the companies that want access to the products and services that will redefine their industry


We help you navigate industry disruption through venture enabled innovation:

  • Insight – inform strategies and business models with new entrepreneurial perspectives
  • Innovation – identify, engage and and collaborate with select ventures at scale
  • Extend – amplify and enhance existing innovation programs


We help you validate and scale through next stage acceleration:

  • Capital – typically investments of $100- $250,000
  • Corporate Collaboration – facilitate and manage pilots to ensure commercial success
  • Venture Development – drawing on our catalyst network of accomplished founders, investors, academics, technologists, and executives to provide the right mentors
