About the Business Accelerator Fund (BAF)
The BAF is available to participating accelerators in Michigan’s statewide SmartZone network, such as LEAP. BAF funds are used to help accelerator clients purchase specialized services that are not otherwise available through a SmartZone accelerator. BAF funds enable business accelerators to engage third party specialists in order to assist advanced technology companies. This program is administered by the Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).
