Donate to UF Innovate | Accelerate. You can select Sid Martin Biotech or The Hub, both award-winning incubators recognized globally for their quality lab space, shared scientific equipment, programming and guidance offered, and the connections to experienced entrepreneurs and investors that come with membership. 

We inspire entrepreneurs to create, change, and cure for a better world. You can be a part of that by sponsoring what we do. 

We’ve been serving our community and assisting clients around the globe since 1995. As a function of the University of Florida Research Foundation, we rely heavily on the generosity and benevolence of our friends. When you provide a gift to us, you’re assisting the community of entrepreneurs and emerging businesses we serve.

Of course, donations benefit you, too. We are part of a non-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. Contributions in excess of the fair value of goods and services received by the donor may be tax deductible. Please consult your personal tax advisors.

We’ve got many ways you can support our work at The Hub and Sid Martin Biotech.

Ways You Can Give

Capital Equipment

Help fund the acquisition of specific capital equipment to further improve our resources and services; we can use scientific equipment, technical equipment, computing equipment, office furniture, and other items to help us drive entrepreneurial growth.

Program-Specific Donations

Contribute to paid internships for high-school and college students, to our events for entrepreneurs,  and more.

Naming Rights

As a sponsor ($2,500 – $10,000 per year, 5-year commitment), you receive naming rights to our conference rooms, classrooms, event rooms, training rooms, laboratories, the lobby, kitchens, and other areas in either facility. This is a great opportunity to “make it your own” and have the entire community recognize your commitment to entrepreneurship.

Friends of Accelerate

Our “friends” level of support ($500 per year, 5-year commitment) provides you with recognition (a plaque on our “Donor Wall of Fame”) and access to all our events and seminars. Our clients will recognize your business as one that supports them in their efforts to grow.
