  • Phase I Incubator Space on the LCCC Campus is available for start-up companies through GLIDE’s co-location leases at the Desich Business and Entrepreneurship Building (DEC) . Consultations from GLIDE business advisors along with below-market lease rates give new businesses a support system to build their business models toward viability and sustainability. 
  • The Desich Business and Entrepreneurship Building (DEC) has the perfect space for Phase II companies and provides competitively priced lease space to support the needs of a business with growing revenues. Tenants at the Center can negotiate short-term leases at rates they can afford.

    The Desich Business and Entrepreneurship Building is home to the Entrepreneurship Innovation Institute. Located in the Great Lakes Technology Park and positioned in front of the Technology Woods, this project is registered to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified.

    The three-story 45,000 square foot building houses many of our EII entities on the first floor, Phase II business tenants on the second floor and a unique MEMS Association project on the third floor that will be home to the Microsystems Technology Application Center (MTAC).

Our state-of- the-art facility will have video conferencing capabilities, a board room, conference rooms, flexible training space and computer labs. The Center is a vital next step in Lorain County’s comprehensive economic and workforce development plan to transition from a traditional manufacturing economy to the Knowledge Economy of the 21st century.
