SEATTLE NEW YORK CITY

Venture Capital

Accelerator’s syndicate of top-tier investors have a proven track record of identifying and building great companies. They are passionate about new ideas and have supported the growth and development of many successful start-up companies. Our investors are committed to supporting our start-up teams for the long term, and understand that developing great science often takes time, resources and mentorship. Our world-class investor syndicate can support and facilitate future investment rounds, setting Accelerator’s portfolio companies on a path to a stable, independent and successful financial future.

Management

We recognize that companies at early stages of development can neither afford nor access the elite management and administrative expertise that a prosperous business demands. To help our portfolio of companies operate more efficiently and reduce risk from wasteful start-up errors, Accelerator provides a single, highly experienced management team while in residence at our facilities. Accelerator provides business development, operations management, and financial oversight for every company housed in its facilities. By letting our companies focus solely on technology development, we give them the unfettered ability to achieve their scientific milestones efficiently. We negotiate complex deals on your behalf and we’ll have your coffee ready in the morning just the way you like it. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Scientific Expertise

Accelerator provides its portfolio companies with access to leadership and critical product development capabilities, including access to resources from partner organizations. In Seattle, Accelerator has expanded its partners to 8 institutions and added 7 institution partners in New York City.  Collectively, these institutions will provide Accelerator companies with unparalleled access to technology development capabilities and scientific expertise.  In addition, our experienced scientific team provides daily scientific support and project management to keep our companies on the path to success.  We’ve walked in your shoes and can share our years of experience working in the laboratory and developing life-saving therapies.

Facilities

Identifying,  purchasing and setting up the necessary services and amenities is the largest barrier to a young biotechnology startup’s viability.  Accelerator’s first-class facilities are optimally designed to allow companies to walk into a state-of-the-art, research-ready  collaborative space and immediately begin developing their ideas. Our facilities in Seattle’s vibrant South Lake Union and New York City’s East 29th Street life science clusters are owned and operated by Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. (NYSE: ARE), and provides flexible, secure and independent laboratory and office suites for each of our portfolio companies to pursue cutting-edge research. Our array of shared spaces, offices, shared core facilities, digital conference and meeting rooms and creative lounge areas foster the kind of interaction and collaboration that spark idea sharing and pioneering advancements.

Make Yourself At Home

Collaboration begets innovation. We believe that providing a set of essential resources that are integrated seamlessly and immediately is critical to the early success of a company. Through our years of experience in building new entrepreneurial ventures, we have learned that accelerating success in biotechnology requires four key elements: venture capital, management, scientific expertise, and world-class facilities. We work hard alongside you and your team to help you apply these resources towards building the strongest foundation possible for your company.
