We envision Wake Forest Innovation Quarter becoming a leading hub for innovation in biomedical science and information technology.  By attracting a diverse mix of academic groups and early and established companies, providing robust company incubator facilities and services, and supporting current and future tenants, Innovation Quarter can become a place where people are inspired to work, want to live, have an opportunity to learn and are able to play.

Our purpose is to promote the creation of an ecosystem for innovation that supports the people, academic departments and companies in their discovery and development of products and services that can lead to treatments and cures and otherwise enhance the lives of mankind.

We do this by:

  • Engaging with our academic, industry and business tenants to meet their needs, including facilities, managed services, special activity features, programs, events and space activation.
  • Creating programs for tenants and residents for the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
  • Promoting the growth and commercialization of innovative products and the entrepreneurship of our academic and industry scientists and their businesses.
