The mission of the Idaho Innovation Center (IIC) is to provide large business resources to small, fledgling companies where entrepreneurs can confidently and aggressively start and grow their small businesses through collaboration, education, mentoring, and advising.
As a business incubator and accelerator, the IIC is a starting point for entrepreneurs who need inexpensive office space to lease. We have available anything from a single office, up to several thousand square feet. We also provide a number of other services such as reception service, phone systems, secretarial service, office supplies and equipment, conference rooms and others that are helpful to start a successful, small business. Once a business has had sufficient time to start and accelerate growth, entrepreneurs are able to “hatch” out of the incubator into off campus space as they continue their growth and expansion. Typically, businesses can plan to stay in the IIC for two to three years.
The Idaho Innovation is a ‘one stop shop’ for start-up businesses. Keeping costs down and providing the means to expedite the growth of small businesses are the backbone of the Innovation Center’s service.
During the time spent at the Idaho Innovation Center, start-up businesses enjoy business space at very low prices. In addition, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to associate with their peers in social and educational settings and have access to many free amenities including: One on one mentoring and advising, conference room usage, general reception service, break rooms, office furniture, workshops and training from experienced professionals, and others. The businesses located in the Innovation Center also have access to reduced cost business services through our strategic partners for everything from bookkeeping to legal services. Everything we do at the Innovation Center is designed to help keep costs down for start-up businesses.
