UAS Cluster Initiative Receives Stage One 2023 SBA Growth Accelerator Fund Competition Award
UASCI has received one of the 40 Stage One Awards from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Growth Accelerator Fund Competition
. The Growth Accelerator Fund Competition made these awards to foster a thriving national ecosystem that advances equitable investment in innovative high growth small businesses. Stage One prizes go directly to 40 organizations that have developed strategies to speed the launch, growth, and scale of STEM/R&D-focused small businesses through inclusive approaches.
For its award, UASCI will work with ecosystem partners to bring opportunities to traditionally underserved tribal nations. Through the creation of the Tribal Emerging Aerospace Growth Accelerator (TEAGA), tribal nations can create a cohesive strategy to capitalize on the rapidly growing emerging aerospace industry. By forging new alliances across industry, academia, and small business support organizations, the partnership can build bridges for tribal members to participate in new and exciting ways.
"We're thrilled to be able to continue the important work of strengthening the emerging aerospace ecosystem in Oklahoma by working closely with our existing partners and forging new partnerships to ensure that entrepreneurial and business opportunities are available to all", said UAS Cluster Initiative Executive Director Craig Mahaney.
UASCI is seeking tribal and entrepreneurial support partners to help catalyze this important work. If you'd like to be involved, please contact Emily Bell at email@example.com.
