Getting Started

The best way to get started is to tell us who you are!  The Innovation Factory is an ecosystem of people in the community.  These include businesses, inventors, entrepreneurs, students and a host of people in the community supporting innovation. If you are in the neighborhood, drop in to our “Innovation Destination”, grab a coffee, use our WiFi and meet with some of the others in our ecosystem.[clear]
