VAccelerate is an initiative started by Virginia Venture Fund leaders in Fall of 2016. The initial idea was to promote entrepreneurship in the UVA community through grants, working space, and resources. Since then VAccelerate has evolved to a mini-accelerator providing initial grant money and advice to startups founded by UVA students. After a few semesters working with venture capital and growth equity partners, VVF analysts are able to apply the skills learned to chosen startups on grounds to help them reach the next stage in their cycle. In spring 2018, VVF provided 4 startups with grant money, and welcomed them to the VAccelerate ecosystem. Below are VAccelerate’s portfolio companies.
