A new model for small and mid-sized communities
We believe that every community deserves a place where people can connect with others, share ideas, find support, and learn new skills. Where these places exist, people create opportunities and local economies thrive. Our mission is to foster a culture of innovation and collaboration in mid-size and rural communities through educational and community building programs to support inclusive entrepreneurship and technology development.
Today, theClubhou.se is a coworking space, a makerspace, a code school, a startup accelerator, a prototyping lab, a mentorship network, an organizer of events, and think tank. It’s also a support resource for organizations in communities across the nation that are working to grow their local innovation economy.
Innovation economies thrive when everyone has the resources and opportunities to meet their potential. To make this possible, our offerings are as diverse as our community.
