The S20 Accelerated Entry Program cohort teams were selected for their innovative approaches to problems most closely aligned with the University of Arizona’s Research and FORGE’s strengths in digital health and community/environmental resilience: “novel nanoparticles for radioisotope detection in advanced research laboratories”; “community-based pandemic preparedness”; “data integration for use in natural resources”; “shipping containers converted into farms located in food deserted areas."


The selected startups participated in our Accelerated Entry Program; a rigorous, 8-week business development curriculum helping early-stage startups reach scale. After which, they earned the chance to join our incubator.
