Jefferson Accelerator Zone


Our renewed focus on innovation has led to the development of the Jefferson Accelerator Zone, or JAZ, where great ideas take flight.

JAZ will serve as "command central" for innovation activities at Jefferson, including events related to the Innovation Engagement Speaker Series, hackathons, and other programs under development. We welcome all members of the Jefferson chapter of the National Academy of Inventors with unlimited access to JAZ to foster mentoring of new ideas and commercialization prospects within the Jefferson community. JAZ will serve as a platform to engage and unleash creative, entrepreneurial talent.  

JAZ can be reserved by individual zone, floor or by building for innovation-related activities only. To request a reservation, please e-mail
