Blackstone Accelerates Growth
Igniting Rural Economies
Blackstone Accelerates Growth spurs economic growth and is designed to help historically resource-based economies transition to innovation economies. Rural economies in the United States must overcome unique challenges, including geographically dispersed population centers and lower levels of innovation and R&D investments. Blackstone Accelerates Growth promotes entrepreneurship by coordinating a critical network of entrepreneurial services to high-potential companies in newly created Innovation Hubs.

Services include start-up mentorships and collaboration with universities to engage students in the start-up process. By facilitating these regional connections, the program will serve as a catalyst for propelling new and existing companies to the next level of growth and profitability.
