The Mayo Clinic Business Accelerator provides infrastructure that enables entrepreneurism for the Rochester community. Founded in 2013, and expanded in 2015, by Rochester Area Economic Development, Inc. (RAEDI), City of Rochester, Mayo Clinic Treasury Services and Mayo Clinic Ventures, the Mayo Clinic Business Accelerator provides collaborative space for new companies, venture capital firms and entrepreneurs. It also works with existing companies and service providers to support entrepreneurial ventures. Located in close proximity to Mayo Clinic, our space encompasses over 3,000 square feet within the skyway level of the Minnesota BioBusiness Center in Rochester. By bringing together like-minded entrepreneurs, investors and advisors, we create a unique ecosystem for the Rochester community to share ideas, resources and expertise. This ecosystem, in turn, promotes local and regional economic development through new company creation and expansion.
