Our mission is to create a diverse economic ecosystem where research, innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurialism collaborate; where innovative developments in the fields of advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, life science and space development are fostered through a concentrated effort.
Novaparke is where innovation begins.
Floyd County Redevelopment Commission and Floyd County Board of Commissioners are extremely excited to announce our community partners. Indiana University Southeast and The Root play a vital collaborative effort in the development of the WhistleStop Entrepreneurial Complex.
Indiana University Southeast is a premier university in our region. As a community partner with Novaparke Innovation and Technology Campus, IU Southeast has agreed to provide faculty and staff services to assist local entrepreneurs in their efforts to develop and grow. Through its award-winning School of Business, the university will have a presence on campus and will provide one-on-one sessions with local entrepreneurs, business seminars and training sessions. Additionally, the faculty will be available through our business accelerator program to assist selected firms in the development and growth of their business.
The campus will also house wet and dry laboratory space which will be available to IU Southeast Natural Science Department faculty, staff and the public. We anticipate additional opportunities and partnerships with various IU Southeast department’s as Novaparke develops and grows.
The Root is a coworking space designed to be a hub of new ideas and innovation, business and creative activity, and resources for your business to flourish. The Root’s mission is to connect unconnected people in a versatile environment by showing the business world what love looks like.
The Redevelopment Commission is continually reaching and discussing with community organizations opportunities to be part of the Novaparke experience. If you are, or know of, a potential group that may be interested in a collaborative environment and promoting entrepreneurism, please reach out to us.
