Welcome to the Innovation Center












The Ohio University Innovation Center 

Building Businesses. Changing Lives.  

The Innovation Center has been helping entrepreneurs turn their promising ideas into flourishing businesses since 1983.  Just a few of the many Success Stories can be viewed here as well as our part in the Ohio University's comprehensive Economic Impact (Chapter Four). For more recent numbers, find the Innovation Center's 2015 Economic Impact report here and the 2016 Economic Impact Report here.


Many of the businesses affiliated with the Innovation Center go on to great things—even when they start small.  By partnering with the Innovation Center, your business can become more stable, more visible, and better equipped for success while also adding a network of industry and business experts to your team. Connections, expertise, and advice will be right at your fingertips.

At the Innovation Center website, you will be introduced to a wide-range of resources and opportunities. You will also find clear answers for questions that are frequently asked. The website also offers the opportunity to learn more about our state-of-the-art space and resources that become available to you upon joining the Innovation Center clientele.  


Need somewhere more spacious and well-lit than your garage’s workbench to build your prototypes? Maybe your business is growing, and you need flexible lease options at affordable rates? Maybe you just need to be introduced to the right bankers, lawyers and distributors to help you reach your goals? If you qualify for tenancy, we can help you find everything you need for your business to grow, and we're ready to start today!
