Real-World Expertise

It takes more than cutting-edge ideas and financial backing to move a company from pre-seed stage to commercialization. It takes hands-on business expertise from people who have been there. At Innovation Works (IW), our team helps guide entrepreneurs by providing them with a real-world understanding of the unique dynamics of technology markets, and the nuances of starting and growing an early-stage company, including: developing a viable business plan, staffing for growth, researching market opportunities and positioning the company to attract investment capital.


Innovation Works values diversity in its programs and encourages women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans to submit applications or business plans for consideration.

Innovation Works is the Ben Franklin Technology Partner of Southwestern PA and is supported by the Department of Community and Economic Development.
