Located in the Center for Research and Development on Nashville Road, the WKU Small Business Accelerator is home to 18+ startup companies.
The Small Business Accelerator provides business support services, connections, expertise, University support, and control of high-impact costs, all within a growth-focused entrepreneurial community allowing the owner to focus on being successful.
Small businesses are the fastest growing segment in American commerce and create 98% of all new jobs. Over 50% of small businesses fail in the first year, and 80% within five years. Often entrepreneurs know how to produce "the work," but lack the skills necessary for operating a business. Equally important, are start-up costs and fixed expenses of operation, which drain hard pressed capital.
Our primary mission is to ensure accelerator businesses are financially viable.
