About TA2

We are here to grow business.

Through the vision of the City of Alliance, Ohio supported by the University of Mount Union and the Alliance Area Development Foundation, the Technology Accelerator Alliance was born. Commonly referred to as TA2, we are bringing together technology innovators, launching their ideas, and accelerating their success. TA2 concentrates on the technology entrepreneur by assisting them to develop world class software ideas then coaching them through each level of business growth.

Housed on the campus of the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio the TA2 mission fuels the entrepreneurial spirit of local students while aligning them with the energy created by launching and accelerating technology focused companies.
