Being in a smaller city should be seen as a strength to entrepreneurs because in our tight-knit community you are often no more than 3 degrees of separation away from finding the resources you need to be successful. We are a group of active community members who want to see South Bend and the greater Michiana area grow and prosper. We believe that for this to happen a culture of entrepreneurship must be developed and fostered.

Our mission is to foster a culture of entrepreneurship in South Bend by connecting people interested in participating in an innovative business community.  We seek to do this by

    • Encouraging collaboration and facilitating connections to develop new ideas and overcome barriers
    • Offering resources and support for the development of businesses
    • Developing a hub for individuals interested in entrepreneurship to work and connect
    • Finding adaptive reuse possibilities for vacant properties

Our group welcomes all comers whether you're just thinking about starting a business, are a serial entrepreneur, or just want to see what all the hubbub is about so come out and join us.

Be sure to join our Facebook Group for fun photos, local headlines, and other information about entrepreneurship:
