Is Innovation Park for me?

There is no single universally accepted definition of a startup. But companies featured in Innovation Park should satisfy most, if not all, of these criteria:

  • They have an emphasis on disruption and entrepreneurship
  • They were founded within the past ten years 
  • They employ fewer than 100 people
  • They are focused more on rapid growth than on immediate profitability 

If you think this describes your company, we would love to hear from you!
