The Spark Zone provides students access to a variety of services and supports at each partner institution, striving to provide opportunities for both students and community members interested in developing an entrepreneurial mindset.

The Spark Zone can help you explore new ideas, launch entrepreneurial ventures, and develop social innovations. Our team provides students opportunities to develop their entrepreneurial side, hosting events throughout the year at which students are able to learn from like-minded peers, potential mentors and industry experts. You can also book office and meeting spaces, get advice from professional consultants before your big client meeting, or even use one of our 3D printers to create your prototype.
