Services Coming Soon for

Innovation Hub Members

We help innovation hubs be better managed and have more and broader positive impact on their startups while we also help founders be stupendously successful. We develop unique content reflecting our expertise, organize and distribute our members’ information to share and also point to excellent information available elsewhere.

Comes With Membership

• Searchable members-only webpages

• Archived on-demand resource lists, reports, checklists, articles, slide decks, teleconferences, podcasts, webinars, videos

• Ask an expert/member-help-member service

• Mentor database

• Events calendar

• Postings of members' available space and open staff jobs

• Specifics for hiring interns and new graduates from Illinois universities

• Monthly and quarterly newsletters
