Networking—meeting new people relevant to your industry—is an integral part of any developing business. The Innovation Center provides a wide variety of opportunities to meet people who can be helpful to your business as it prospers, including:

  • Social events at or sponsored by the Innovation Center
    • Innovation Center clients are automatically invited to our quarterly Technology & Entrepreneurship Happy Hour, which serves as an optimal opportunity to network with investors, inventors, researchers, key staff members, and others that can be vital to your business.

    • Client Networking Luncheons (bimonthly) are opportunities for Innovation Center clients to get to know more about one another and each individual business.

  • Meeting other entrepreneurs who work in the building

  • Ongoing relationships with the SBDC, TechGrowth Ohio and other sources of business assistance and funding

  • Established, reliable connections with bankers, attorneys and other professionals who can assist you in creating a solid foundation for your business

  • Training events that bring in many people from other companies and agencies and are a great place to network, find potential clients and/or collaborators, and learn more about building your business.

  • Connections with local and state government officials

  • Relationships with faculty who can share their expertise in your field

Successful businesses are not created in a vacuum. The Innovation Center will help you connect with new people, key resources and fresh ideas.
