  • Physical space for innovative individuals and companies
  • A Research, Data & Design (R+D2) Program that pairs companies with student and faculty teams to provide real-world problem-solving and project support
  • Programming in innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Consulting in key areas like design thinking, lean startup and more
  • Sponsorship opportunities to support the HUB and advance regional innovation and entrepreneurship
