Kentucky APEX Accelerator Highlighted in KSTC Impact Report

As an initiative of the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation, Kentucky APEX Accelerator works with our partner programs to accelerate innovation-driven economic development throughout the state. Collectively, we do this by supporting research-driven products and services, expanding access to capital, and developing talent.

Our team, specifically, promotes inclusive economic development across Kentucky by assisting companies in providing products and/or services to federal, state and local governments and agencies. Our clients are located throughout the state, such as Tony Cole, founder of SenezCo in Nicholasville, KY, who we helped secure their first federal award this year.

I came across the KY APEX Accelerator searching for help and support. Eric and his team not only helped me finalize my registration with but also helped develop my statement of capabilities and introduced me to various small business advocates.
