ecosystem leadership

As active startup ecosystem builders, we have a first hand understanding of the struggles that community leaders, economic developers, and innovation space operators face in building successful startups and a financially viable ecosystem of support. Not only have we helped grow over 60 companies, we have built an independent financially self sustaining nonprofit with multiple locations that has served over 25,000 people and helped over 2,000 people learn new skills in coding, electronics, finance, marketing, and design.

We continually strive to share the knowledge and experience we have gained to help other communities succeed.
