America’s first business accelerator dedicated to physical products and local manufacturing.

First Batch will be back –


We’re excited to finally share what we’ve been working on for the last year and a half! We paused our accelerator after the 2016 program because on our journey to make First Batch better, we realized we needed to bring together a number of missing pieces in our ecosystem to create real impact. Our work culminated in our plan to create CoMADE:  a physical center in Cincinnati’s urban core where new ideas, products, jobs and opportunities are generated. Our accelerator will be back in a new home when the CoMADE building opens in 2020. Follow along with our journey over at @CoMADEcincy on all social channels and on our website.
