  • From idea to viable business in 55 hours! Ramp Up Weekends pull together teams of developers, designers, makers, entrepreneurs and mentors to test their mettle in a heated competition that rewards the top ideas with cash and prizes and everyone else with amazing amount of fun. The goal is to connect marketable ideas with the talent needed to launch them and to access resources to help fuel growth.

  • Every third Thursday, join the innovation community over lunch for lectures and discussions on what’s going on the startup and tech scenes.

    Lunch & Learn

    North Forge Meetups

  • Our series that mixes topics in tech with time to mix with others in the community – shaken, stirred and social.

    Tech Cocktail

  • Every Tuesday evening the Fabrication Lab runs an open house to show how entrepreneurial members are starting businesses through rapid protyping.

    Tours & Demos

  • Member orientation runs every Tuesday to get you trained and certified on equipment with experienced members.
