Accelerate UConn provides a framework for entrepreneurial faculty, staff, and students to assess the market potential of early-stage technologies developed in their labs. Along with early customer contact, the program also provides rigorous NSF-endorsed entrepreneurial training.

As participants in Accelerate UConn, Rosenberg and Hanley have worked with seasoned entrepreneur and scientist Bijan Almassian, the CEO and a co-founder of CaroGen Corp., an emerging vaccine company that is part of the UConn Technology Incubation Program.
