The Entrepreneur Innovation Center is a hybrid co-working/incubator space in the MetroWest region. The Center provides a collaborate workspace for members, giving them access to resources and connections to new ideas and new networks. At the center, you will receive a quality co-working experience that's quiet, comfortable, and extremely convenient, with a wealth of additional benefits, including a mail address for your company and free Wi-Fi.

Work alongside entrepreneurs from a variety of industries, ranging from IT, to Fashion Design, and even Nutrition, who all plan to build their business in the Metrowest area. The Center provides startup entrepreneurs with the resources, time, and space to help turn their ideas into actual businesses in the shared work area, where members connect with each other, collaborate, and exchange ideas. It even provides student interns from Framingham State University, available to help with various size projects for the members. Each semester the EIC looks for new interns to work closely with entrepreneurs running start-up businesses. The Center's intern pool is managed by the Director with academic guidance from the University, thereby ensuring members get some high-quality resources to further their commercial endeavors. By the same token, interns receive hands-on business training in conjunction with specialized course curriculum tailored to entrepreneurship.
