Innovation Studio has been an active member of the Roxbury Community since partnering with the City of Boston in 2015 to create and manage the Roxbury Innovation Center. Today the team at Innovation Studio not only operates the Innovation Space located in Dudley Square, but also offers programs and resources to support new and aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners.
An introductory first step into our programming and designed for anyone interested in starting on an entrepreneurial journey or working to pivot or expand their business. During this session, entrepreneurs meet one-to-one with a trained staff or mentor who provides an overview of our resources.
Workshops are designed to train a group of entrepreneurs on business principles. Each workshop covers an individual topic that supports the growth or development of a business.
LAUNCH! is an eight-session series that teaches new and aspiring entrepreneurs the fundamentals of building a business. This fast-paced program enables entrepreneurs to work with experts each week who provide the tools, resources and knowledge to take an idea and make it a business.
Pitch Night is a popular community event where founders, aspiring entrepreneurs and a curious community come together to celebrate the innovative ideas being developed in our local communities.
