    The Accelerator Fund is an $8.1M fund focused on early stage investments in life sciences companies located in western Pennsylvania. As the first fund sponsored and managed by the professionals of the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse (PLSG), all the companies that are a part of the Accelerator's portfolio have already been vetted by the PLSG through due diligence, mentoring by the PLSG's Executive Program services, and investments made through PLSG investment programs. To date, the Accelerator Fund I currently has nine portfolio companies and is fully invested.
