HOST AN EVENT AT CIC
CIC supports events that drive the innovation ecosystem. We build and foster community connections by providing opportunities for entrepreneurs to collaborate, network, and innovate. A variety of events occur at CIC, such as sector-specific collaborations, programming meetups, pitching exercises, startup workshops, and panel discussions. The types of events we support benefit entrepreneurs by giving them the tools, skills, and resources needed to flourish. To help strengthen ties and involvement with the community, we welcome events hosted by both CIC members and outside organizations.
We look forward to working with you to help find the best space for your event. If your event is outside of the realm of the innovation community, we’re always happy to discuss all of the options available to you at CIC. We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of CIC’s goals is to have a sustainable events program that allows us to support events which bring value to the innovation ecosystem. Our pricing model provides additive discounts, which take into account the mission of the event, if the event is free and open to the public, if the event is hosted by a non-profit or volunteer group, or if the host has rented office space at CIC in the past. Please see below for a detailed outline of the discount model which will be applied to the rental space fee. Please note that this discount does not apply to additional event-related charges that depend on the specifics of the event. We are happy to provide a complete quote once you are ready to submit your event request through our form.
