The EKU Business and Technology Accelerator is a university-based Incubator that has been in operation for more than 5 years. Business Incubation is defined as “a business support process that accelerates the successful development of start-up and fledgling companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services.” At EKU, we provide low-cost office space combined with coaching and resources to help entrepreneurs grow successful companies in Kentucky.
