Companies Will be Located in LCCC’s Entrepreneurship Innovation Center
The Great Lakes Innovation and Development Enterprise (GLIDE) and Lorain County Community College (LCCC) today announced that four new technology based companies have recently relocated into the Edison Technology Incubator within the Entrepreneurship Innovation Center (EIC).
The EIC building is located within LCCC’s Great Lakes Technology Park that is adjacent to the LCCC campus. The four companies, which are at various stages of business start-up, are bringing 19 jobs to Lorain County.
“When we started GLIDE in 2001 it was with idea that we would help start-up businesses become successful and in the process entice them to locate within Lorain County,” said LCCC President Dr. Roy A. Church. “These companies are locating here because they see a level of support that is helping them avoid some of the pitfalls of starting their business. They also see benefit from the access to some our outstanding students and faculty.”
The Companies that are new to the GLIDE business incubator are:
