Management of Innovation Pointe | Business Incubation

Located in the heart of Downtown Evansville, Innovation Pointe assists in the creation and growth of new businesses in the Evansville area to increase the overall wealth of our city and people. Tenants at Innovation Pointe have access to countless amenities at little or no cost. In addition to office space, Coworking space is available at Innovation Pointe!
Innovation & Entrepreneurship
The Growth Alliance mentors and provides educational services and networking opportunities to a wide range of local innovators and entrepreneurs. The Growth Alliance also leads and/or participates in a number of initiatives aimed at developing Evansville's entrepreneurial ecosystem; supporting the launch of technology-based businesses and the development and commercialization of products and processes applying technological advances. We suggest joining Evansville Tech on Tap to become involved in the local entrepreneurial/tech community. Ask us about free business resources and educational opportunities at Innovation Pointe!
Quality of Place & Talent
Greater Evansville's quality of place is important for attracting and retaining businesses and talent. Knowing this, we tackle projects to create a more livable community. Our recent projects include the launch of Uber in Evansville, the launch of a crowdfunding campaign for a cultural districts trolley (TED: Trolley of Evansville Districts), and the launch of Evansville's first and only coworking space. We're also the creators of Self-e Alley; breathing a vibrant energy into our city via Instagram-worthy, interactive, thoughtfully designed mural art to celebrate the greater Evansville community.
The community speaks - we listen, and take action. Do you have suggestions on how to make our corner of the world an even better place? Contact us.
