Colorado Advanced Industries Accelerator Program Grant Award Announcement

Start your day at Basecamp by joining Ken Lund, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, as he announces the Colorado Advanced Industry Accelerator Grant Program Winners!

The Advanced Industries (AI) Accelerator Programs were created in 2013 to promote growth and sustainability by helping drive innovation, accelerate commercialization, encourage public-private partnerships, increase access to early stage capital and create a strong ecosystem that increases the state’s global competitiveness.

Colorado’s advanced industries include: advanced manufacturing, aerospace, bioscience, electronics, energy and natural resources (including Cleantech), infrastructure engineering, and technology and information. The economic impact of these industries account for nearly 30 percent of the state’s wage earnings, nearly 30 percent of the total sales revenues across all industries within the state and nearly 35 percent of the state’s total exports.

As part of the statewide strategy to support these critical industries in their various phases of growth, OEDIT offers four types of grants and two global business programs. Grants are available for Proof of Concept, Early-Stage Capital & Retention, Infrastructure Funding and AI Exports. A network of consultants and export training program are also available as part of the AI Global Business Programs to support these industries as they strive for worldwide markets.
