Having a space in the IC CoLab has allowed me not only to use conference rooms, printers, and high-speed internet, but the real value has been networking with other companies in helping build my business!

About IC CoLab

IC CoLab and the Coralville CoLab, are programs of the Iowa City Area Development Group (ICAD Group).  Our non-profit organization provides economic development and workforce development services for interstate commerce companies in our service territory.

Startup space for your startup, where we accelerate serendipity.

Big ideas usually come from smaller hunches that intermingle in an innovative environment.    But, work styles, communication trends, and other hurdles have slowed this process down.  The ideas are still there but the connections aren’t being made.

For our area to advance to higher horizons, connections between ideas, people and companies must be catalyzed.  ICAD Group can create and foster open innovation and drive these connections by creating a space and networking platforms that emerging and existing local companies value.

Shout out.

The space is sponsored in part by the City of Iowa City, The University of Iowa, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Allsteel, ACT, Pearson and Neumann Monson Architects.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) offers a variety of programs and services to individuals, communities and businesses to attract and grow business, employment and workforce in Iowa. Additional support for this effort, including branding and web material, comes from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.
