Innovation Fund 2009

Innovation Fund 2009

 

Lorain County Community College is clearly in the business of growing talent and helping to grow jobs. 

In order to retain our top talent, our region and state must offer good job opportunities to help nurture a thriving economy fueled by innovation and entrepreneurship.  LCCC, in collaboration with local, regional and state partners has developed initiatives specifically designed to grow businesses and jobs.  GLIDE (the Great Lakes Innovation and Development Enterprise) and the Innovation Fund are shining examples of this community’s commitment to economic development.

Through a partnership with the Lorain County Commissioners, the Chamber of Commerce, Lorain County Community College and our most recent collaborator the state of Ohio, GLIDE is one of 12 Edison Technology Incubators across the state and is the only one located on a college campus.

GLIDE, housed in LCCC’s Entrepreneurship Innovation Center, mentors aspiring entrepreneurs by teaching them to wrap good business practices around promising technology ideas with the goal of growing new enterprises and creating new jobs in high growth industries.

As a compliment to the mentoring services available through GLIDE, the LCCC Foundation launched its Innovation Fund.  The Innovation Fund provides modest funding support to entrepreneurs at the earliest stage of development.   The Innovation Fund is unique in that it is supported through philanthropic contributions from the community.
