About the Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program

Colorado’s advanced industries play a vital role in the state’s economic growth and stability. They are research and development (R&D) and engineering-intensive companies, contributing to the state’s thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. They account  for close to 30% of wage earnings, almost 30% of total sales revenue, and around 35% of the state’s total exports.

The Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program, managed by Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), is a critical source of non-dilutive funding for Colorado early-stage life sciences companies and organizations. It demonstrates a significant return on investment, delivering value back to the state through company creation and high-paying jobs.

The success metrics since program inception across all advanced industries include:

  • 830 Awards
  • $150.8M Awarded
  • 5,036 New Jobs Created
  • 5,223 Jobs Retained
  • 124 New Companies Created
  • 788 Patents Filed
  • $2.9B in Follow-On Capital 

CBSA is proud to support this vital source of funding for innovation-focused startups.
