Prosper HealthTech Accelerator
Managing Director

Kellie Clark is the Managing Director of Prosper Heath-Tech Accelerator (PHTA) powered by gener8tor, a pre-seed investment fund that provides capital and business strategy to promising digital health companies. Prior to PHTA, Kellie served as the CEO and co-founder of Appthink, an idea accelerator and community of builders that helps new founders turn audacious ideas into audacious execution and determine if their ideas for a tech or tech-enabled venture are worth the pursuit.

She has previous experience leading program management and organizational change. During her tenure as the Director of Programs and Managing Director for Innovation Depot, an incubator and equity-based accelerator, she created and curated programming for early-stage founders, and supported pre-seed/seed investments in companies reshaping industries in the southeast.

Her “wins” include everything from launching a pre-accelerator during her time with Innovation Depot to driving a 200% increase in recruitment and enrollment in her previous role with Innovate Birmingham’s software development Bootcamp. In addition, Kellie served as the lead Project Manager for Birmingham’s 2018 Innovation Week, a week-long celebration of events that showcased Birmingham’s tech – ecosystem and engaged tech talent in the city.

Kellie is a two-time graduate of Auburn University. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Masters of Public Administration, with a concentration in Economic Development. As an AmeriCorps alumna, she has an affinity for community service and currently gives her time and talent to various non-profit organizations in the southeast.

Kellie spends her free time engaging in outdoor sports and serving as the Southeast Regional leader for Outdoor Afro, a national organization with the expressed mission to “celebrate and inspire African-American connections and leadership in nature.” She serves as on the board for Urban Community Montessori, Ruffner Mountain, Cahaba River Society, and as an advisory member for Birmingham Black Techies.

When she’s not encouraging first-time founders to validate and build, you can find her leading kayak adventures on the Coosa River, being an audiophile at Seasick Records or road-tripping with her husband and their two small children.
