The region has scored a new startup business accelerator that Berlin-based Lead Sports plans to launch this summer in southeast Orlando’s Lake Nona community.
While Lake Nona already is home to two established business incubators, this new program — dubbed the Lead Lake Nona Sports & Health Tech Accelerator —offers distinct qualities that will complement the existing facilities, Carol Ann Dykes Logue, site manager of the University of Central Florida’s Lake Nona business, told Orlando Business Journal. “There’s more than enough need that we all can fill together.”
The new Lead Lake Nona Sports & Health Tech Accelerator aims to boost companies with a focus in either nutrition, sports/health tech or smart cities. Lead Sports’ first U.S. accelerator will open in the 16,000-square-foot innovation space now under construction on the ground floor of the Pixon Apartment Building adjacent the Lake Nona Town Center.
