What We Do

You name it!  From start-up coaching, business planning, peer-to-peer connections, and expert advisors to flexible co-working memberships, business space options, and student programs…if we don’t have it, we’ll do our best to find it.  Getting started is as simple as letting us know how we can help.

Why We Do What We Do

We do what we do because we believe in the future of southern Illinois.  Whether spawned from university research, a student idea, or a community member’s long-time dream, we believe that innovative ideas are all around us (some just need a little nurturing).  And isn’t that what an incubator is all about?!? Support, community, resources, and so much more.  What are you waiting for?
Our in-house start-ups and growing companies have 24/7 incubator access, but we offer tons of opportunities for face-to-face and virtual access for all our members.

Where We Are

EVERYWHERE! Seriously, although our physical location is at 1740 Innovation Drive (and our people LOVE having Innovation Drive as their start-up address), our resources reach far beyond the walls of our 55,000 square foot incubator.  You can be part of our growing community in person or virtually (or both).  It’s your choice!
