Having a space in the IC CoLab has allowed me not only to use conference rooms, printers, and high-speed internet, but the real value has been networking with other companies in helping build my business!
Thank you for making the Iowa City Colab classroom available to my IDT team this week for an offsite retreat. Time, attention, and focus are critical to any business. The Iowa City Colab was an ideal environment for our team to get away from the daily work routine and distractions, and focus on our most critical issues and opportunities.
The IC CoLab opened its doors at an opportune time for Radiology Protocols. We are a young company and needed to expand. Not only did the IC CoLab provide the space and office infrastructure we needed; it connected Radiology Protocols to the business community and the wider entrepreneurial network. The culture of energy and connectivity at the IC CoLab is invaluable to an entrepreneur.
