The Naples Accelerator, located at 3510 Kraft Road, Suite 200, off Pine Ridge Road, is a public-private partnership between Collier County's Office of Business & Economic Development and non-profit Economic Incubators Inc. It's Southwest Florida's top business accelerator. Since it opened, it's assisted 88 companies and brought in more than $12.2 million in venture and capital investment. 

The 10,000-square-foot business accelerator provides companies with offices, conference rooms, networking, mentoring and training to grow their startups and small businesses and brings businesses closer to sources of funding by offering its own venture funding angels, the Adrenaline Venture Fund and Fusion Pointe, a member that's an offshoot of the successful JumpStart program in Cleveland.

Our businesses have received mentorship from industry leaders, pitched to numerous well-connected, successful CEOs and entrepreneurs and have gained access to numerous investors and sales leads. Our 35 current tenants are local and global, coming from as far away as Finland, Norway, Hungary, Slovakia, Britain, Germany, France and the Ukraine to get their start in the Southwest Florida area.

Our members receive training from a variety of leaders in technology, business and public administration.
