Welcome to TA2
The Technology Accelerator Alliance, (TA2), is a hybrid technology accelerator and incubator located in Alliance, Ohio. Sharing the objective of bringing technology innovators to Northeast Ohio, The University of Mount Union, The City of Alliance, and The Alliance Area Development (AAD) launched TA2. TA2 is governed by a Board of Directors from all three of these participating entities. With the initial funding provided by the three founding partners, TA2 is able to provide portfolio companies with a physical location along with a mentorship network including a partnership with JumpStart.
Within the field of Information Technology, TA2 focuses on the following areas:
- Business to Business (B2B) Software
- Business to Customer (B2C) Software
- Software as a Service (SaaS) Models
The goal of the TA2 Accelerator is to take portfolio companies through the various stages of the business cycle successfully. TA2 Branded Partners will help businesses through market research and concept validation while TA2 connects them with an intense mentorship network with strong start up experience or industry specific experience within the company’s field of interest. During the Accelerator Program, portfolio companies will be guided through various stages of the business cycle by expert mentors. At the end of this program, portfolio companies will have the skills they need to take their business to the next level as well as the opportunity to pitch to a group of potential investors. Companies that are successful in the Accelerator may be asked to join the TA2 Incubator Program as an in-house portfolio company.
