The Coralville CoLab is my permanent work place. I worked at home the past 5 years and I can’t explain how nice it is to get out of the house and be around great and intelligent people. The atmosphere is amazing and state of the art. Between good people, amazing office space you can’t ask for much more.

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.
