Incubox

Incubox Logo

INCUBOX helps companies in the region grow from concept to start-up to early stage to full on market expansion. We provide advice and connections to a network of resources, many at no cost to students and entrereneurs. INCUBOX accommodates both physical and virtual companies of any type including those that have no tech, low tech, or high tech.

INCUBOX offers an intense, mentor driven, accelerator program located within the campus of the University of Mount Union. This service targets businesses later in the development process, looking to maximize their success and grow their company. It exists to bring together innovators and entrepreneurs to launch their ideas, and accelerate their companies into successful business operations.

INCUBOX and Mount Union

INCUBOX, in collaboration with Mount Union and the Burton D. Morgan Foundation, has been connecting students to local companies to perform specific project work. Students have completed successful projects in human resources, organizational structure, marketing planning, and website development. If your company has need for project focused internships, please contact us. 

In the near future, INCUBOX and Mount Union’s Entrepreneurship Program will be conducting a workshop targeted towards K-12 teachers on how to infuse innovation and entrepreneurial concepts into classroom curriculum. The workshop is free with some costs cover. Funding for this workshop is generously provided by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation. Contact John Myers, entrepreneur-in-residence, at myersje@mountunion.edu.

BizChats

Potentially returning in May, INCUBOX will continue BizChats, which are informal discussions about business ideas and help getting started. They are held the second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the Rodman Main Library. Check the INCUBOX Facebook page and the library’s calendar to confirm dates. For idea discussion prior to the events, or anytime, contact John Myers.
