Incubation Services

The LaunchPad Incubation Program is Northwest Ohio's premier business start-up and entrepreneurial assistance program for innovative and high-tech companies. 

Business model development: We focus on a “lean launch” methodology, featuring the NSF backed Business Model Canvas, which supports evidence-based entrepreneurship.

Hands-on coaching: Launchpad Incubation startup participants are paired with advisors who can provide key information and expertise.

State-of-the-art facilities: We offer private offices of varying sizes, lab space, co-working facilities, and meeting rooms as well as newly updated features like UT Maker Space and a multimedia center.

Access across UT: Resources from UT’s entire campus community, from Main Campus to the Health Science Campus and the tech corridor, are available, including students, faculty, technology and tech experts, as well as companion startups in LaunchPad Incubation.

Essential networking opportunities: Monthly tenant mixers, mentor meet and greets and other events offer introductions to top business leaders within various industries.

Access to capital: We work closely with the primary funding sources in our region – and beyond – to provide access to funding and investment opportunities.
