Business Incubation is at the core of the Innovation Center, and will occupy ~ 10,000 sq. ft. of the building. The Center will rent desks to pre-screened, high growth start-up ventures and provide them with turn-key office solutions, including: flexible, short-term leases, high speed data lines, WiFi, receptionist & mail services, printer/fax, and meeting rooms. The Incubator (our Not-for Profit arm) will provide access to pro-bono legal & accounting services from leading firms, and to exceptional talent- experienced executives and interns. Mentorship and Accelerator Programs will include both valuable advice from experienced entrepreneurs, VC’s, Angels and industry experts, as well as introductions to other investors and strategic partners.
Our incubator tenants are also eligible to apply for CT State grants of up to $30,000. Primary focus will be on scalable, Angel/Venture fundable start-ups but will also serve local high growth businesses and social entrepreneurs.
Co-Working: Another 2000 sq. ft. is available for shared workspace will also be available to any member of the entrepreneurial community. Members pay monthly fees to have access to ‘a seat at the table’, WiFi and business services. No screening is necessary.
