It takes community for an idea to become a product and enter the market. Here at Innovation Park, a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Notre Dame, we leverage a vast network of entrepreneurial resources to help our clients enter the market. Many of these resources are found on campus, many are found in regional, national and global partnerships.

Tapping into talent

Close contact with all colleges at the University of Notre Dame helps us embrace the extensive talent provided by Notre Dame students, alumni, and faculty that is pivotal to business planning and growth. Relationships with local universities and colleges, including Saint Mary's College, Holy Cross College, Indiana University South Bend, Ivy Tech, and Bethel College further allows us access to business and technical talent in support of Innovation Park clients.

Eyes wide open

Ongoing collaboration with the University of Notre Dame's Office of Research and Office of Technology Transfer helps us identify and nurture commercial opportunities arising from University research. Specific areas of University research expertise, including nanoelectronics, global health, flow physics, orthopedics, micro-sensing and energy provide fertile ground for the recognition of new commercial ventures.

Innovating like champions

Innovation Park loves to support the commercial activities of the many campus-wide student entrepreneurship clubs and organizations, like the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and ESTEEM.

Community Connection

Innovation Park works closely with regional entities to support our clients' diverse needs. We are part of a two site  state-certified technology park with Ignition Park which is owned and managed by the City of South Bend.
