The good news is that Louisville has already established itself as a leader in supporting health industry entrepreneurs. The even better news is that Louisville is reinforcing that position by being the first city in the southern region of the U.S. to offer an accelerator for early-stage, health-related companies.
XLerateHealth is led by Bob Saunders, a seasoned venture capitalist who has worked with more than 100 startup companies. His fellow co-founders are Ted Smith, a successful health care entrepreneur in his own right, and Director of Economic Growth & Innovation for Louisville Metro Government; and Bobby Ferreri, Executive Director of Greater Louisville's Inc.'s EnterpriseCorp.
The goal is for XLerateHealth to house some of the most innovative health-related companies in the United States and concentrate on leveraging industry partners, including providers, payers and ACO's, to fast-track learning and growth through real-world pilot testing at potential future customer sites for participating companies.
