Technology Accelerator Alliance (TA2)

Housed on the campus of the University of Mount Union, TA2 looks to incubate companies to that of successful enterprises while connecting students to the real world environment of start up, early stage, and successful business operations. TA2 accommodates both physical and virtual companies along the start up and early stage business development process.

TA2 also oversees an intense, mentor driven, accelerator program on the campus of the University of Mount Union.  Check their website for more information.
