Training Event

The IC’s Founders' Forum brings together CEOs and Founders to learn from each other, discuss pressing issues, and provide a network of peer support. Guest speakers are often invited to provide expertise on topics of interest.
The IC also connects clients with mentors including venture capitalists, early stage funders, subject-matter experts, successful graduate companies, founders of other technology companies, marketing/sales/start-up consultants, technology based venture development organizations, and more. 
Technology and Entrepreneurship Mixers are quarterly events held at a local establishment where people from all areas of the entrepreneurial ecosystem come together to network in a fun, social environment. For startup founders, the mixers serve as casual job fairs, with teams often able to find the necessary complement to their team of developers, designers or marketing professionals.
Client Networking Lunches are held quarterly and often coincide with the arrival of a new company to the IC.  A great way to network with fellow IC clients, these luncheons help build a stronger community.
