About the IN2 LINKubator

IN2, a community idea incubator and shared creation space located at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in Aurora, is piloting two co-working cohorts of Fox Valley area startups.  Shared space is available starting in mid January 2017 for two different cohorts:  tech-enabled and non-profit.  Startup teams of 1-3 people have the opportunity to LINK their startup to the IN2 network of collaborators and utilize IN2 resources (facility wi-fi, cafe, copier, access to IN2 interns, access to mentors and idea baristas and shared workspace M-F from 8:30 am - 4 pm) to grow your startup. Deadline to apply is January 3, 2017 at Noon. Startups chosen may work out of IN2 (located on the IMSA campus at 1500 Sullivan Rd., Aurora, IL. 60506) starting January 16, 2017 through June 3, 2017. Accepted startups will be notified on or before January 10, 2017; an all-in fee of $500 per person is expected (partial or full payment) after acceptance. Questions should be directed to Britta McKenna, IMSA Chief Innovation Officer, at bmckenna@imsa.edu.
