ROOM FOR GROWTH @ THE NIIC.

Entrepreneurs, emerging companies, startup professionals, educational partners and experienced mentors fill our 40,400 sq. ft. facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Collaboration and networking happen daily, and peer-to-peer learning, advice and insight are always on hand.
Time spent in The NIIC’s business incubation program varies from business to business. Some spend years in incubation. Others spend only a few months.

The NIIC is home to businesses across the spectrum and welcoming to every stage in between. We work with both fundable entities and bootstrapped, self-funded ventures.
