Innovation Factory ignites innovation. Through workshops, programming, one-on-one mentoring and aiding with access to funding, we help startups commercialize their ideas and small/medium enterprises innovate within their organizations. Whether you have an idea on the back on a napkin or a working product with paying customers, we can help get you to the next level. 

 Our mission is to strengthen Greater Hamilton’s next generation of job and wealth creation by helping Entrepreneurs bring new ideas to life and to market, Small/Medium Enterprises (SMEs) get to the next level, and Hamilton build a dynamic culture and a community of innovation.

 Innovation can happen anywhere. Our goal is to make it work everywhere. We work to elevate key industry sectors including: advanced manufacturing, clean tech, information technology, life sciences & health care, social innovation and more.
