The Innovation Center offers your early stage company a complete support system to reduce risk and assist you in developing sustainable business practices. But, the process is competitive. To meet the minimum requirements, you must have a technology-based idea, a product with growth potential, and/or be an early stage startup company.
Rather than have you spend hours filling out paperwork, we want to begin the process with a conversation. To start this process, contact our Associate Director.
The next step will be a meeting where our Client Liason and EIR will assess your needs and make a recommendation as to what resources your startup needs to become successful, even if it doesn't mean that we're the right fit for your business.
If the Innovation Center services and space is something from which you could benefit, you will be invited to submit a full application. The application will ask about your product, market, team, value proposition, resources needed and several basic building blocks necessary for success.
The Director and Associate Director will review your application and schedule an interview with you to determine your qualifications. In order to get the most out of your time here at the IC, a set of requirements has been put into place that lays the foundation for positive outcomes including:
Finally, if selected, you will meet with our administrative staff to complete a lease and service agreement along with other necessary paperwork.
