Our Mission

Our 100 day startup accelerator program and 7,000 square feet of coworking space push today’s entrepreneurs to their limits, while our kids coding classes and MakerMobile get tomorrow’s entrepreneurs excited about their futures.


Our 100-day startup accelerator provides funding, mentoring and training to promising young companies within an environment specifically designed to assist them through the critical early stages of their business.


We provide courses on web development, game development, hardware development, makership and business development. Our students take what they learn and build things, making the region a better place.
