KiiLN - whose co-founders are graduates of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai - has been selected a winner among hundreds of entries for this year’s Growth Accelerator Fund Competition, awarded by the US Small Business Administration (SBA). The awards were announced on August 4th, 2015 at the first-ever White House Demo Day. President Barack Obama hosted this event to highlight the contributions made by innovators to the nation’s economy, with a focus on inclusive entrepreneurship. KiiLN got its start in a Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences/Mount Sinai Institute of Technology (MSIT)-sponsored course for the Design, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (DTE) training area called The Q.E.D. Project.
