WHAT IS THE REGIONAL INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP?
CoLab offers a 6-month membership to select students in the area to provide a safe, resource-rich space for ideation and entrepreneurship. Over the 6-month period, the student will have access to CoLab and all amenities. In exchange, CoLab will ask for monthly status reports from the student and for the completion of a startup check list provided by CoLab.
This partnership is for students in the Roanoke-Blacksburg region who are interested in pursuing an entrepreneurial path. The student must be able to be at CoLab for 5 hours / week.
