A center for small business development.
The HUB of Innovation is an extension of the Hammond INnovation Center also managed by the Hammond Development Corporation. The HUB is a new avenue for cultivating small business and job creation through small business development and internship opportunities. We provide the resources to begin transition and develop interns into small business owners and career employees of Hammond businesses while assisting business tenants with their expansion and growth.
Participants of our Internship Program come from Hammond High Schools, the HAST Charter School and Purdue Calumet, IU Northwest, Calumet College and Ivy Tech. These interns are working with mentors and local businesses within The Hub on 3D printing projects, vertical gardening, video editing and development and movie making for non-profits and entrepreneurs.
We are also developing a studio to expand entrepreneurship in our creative industries.
We are the location of several businesses that bring diversified professionals together working with the cutting edge of their industries. We are the member of the Makerspace movement. We have lounge areas for students, interns, and business tenants to do work.
We offer space rental, office space, meeting space, tech lab, video studio, art studio, presentation area, fitness center, marketing assistance, business consulting, audio/visual equipment, community meeting resources, high speed internet access, resource library, business development and support.
