Why The Innovation Garage?

Why The Innovation Garage?

The name recognizes and honors the spirit of the most innovative companies… many of which started in a garage.

Where we grew up, the garage is:

  1. ​The first space to build something, or fix something that’s broken.
  2. ​Where some cool ideas are quickly built out.
  3. A place to learn, build, make sparks, fail-forward and grow.
