TRENTON, N.J. (Feb. 12, 2013) – The Christie Administration is looking to tap into the expertise of the private sector to bolster New Jersey’s status as a leader in life sciences and healthcare technology.  To help the industry’s most promising entrepreneurs deliver products to market, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) today announced that it will launch a Life Sciences/Healthcare IT Accelerator and secure a private partner to manage the effort. 

“Governor Christie recognizes how important it is to nurture the growth of New Jersey’s early-stage life sciences and technology companies, and this is another opportunity for the state to partner with the private sector to fill a market need,” said EDA Chief Executive Officer Michele Brown.  “The Life Sciences/Healthcare IT Accelerator will allow us to capitalize on the talent in our region and provide an environment that catalyzes innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation.”  READ MORE
