The Accelerator Building at UWM’s Innovation Campus

Opened in 2013, the UWM Accelerator is a 25,000 sq. ft. facility that serves as a catalyst, enabling the region’s academic, medical and business organizations to collaborate on projects that work to move science to application and commercial uses. With researchers from UWM, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Concordia University Wisconsin, and other academic institutions, the Accelerator encourages academic research with commercial potential. The Accelerator brings together industry partners, startups and researchers. Goals for the Accelerator include increased patents, technology licenses, spinoff companies creating new jobs, as well as technology transfer and new collaborations with the business community.
