The Naples Accelerator, located at 3510 Kraft Road, off Pine Ridge Road, is a public-private partnership of Collier County and non-profit Economic Incubators Inc. The 10,000-square-foot accelerator provides companies with offices, conference rooms, networking, mentoring and training to grow their startups and small businesses. Headed by the accelerator's president and CEO Dr. Marshall Goodman, the Naples Accelerator also brings businesses closer to sources of funding. Companies have received mentorship from industry leaders, pitched to numerous well-connected people and have gained access to investors and sales leads. Our 35 current tenants are local and global, coming from as far away as Finland, Norway, Hungary, Slovakia, Britain, Germany, France and the Ukraine to get their start in the Southwest Florida area.
