Since the city’s technology incubator launched in 2011, it has attracted and nurtured the growth of a variety of tech companies in a space conducive to collaboration and entrepreneurship. Myonexus Therapeutics, a gene therapy startup that grew out of Nationwide Children’s Hospital research, was sold to Sarepta for $165 million. Several companies outgrew their spaces and relocated to other areas within New Albany, including Buckeye Interactive, a digital marketing firm now in its tenth year; Mollard Consulting, a consulting service for nonprofits; and Auditgraph, a company that provides technology-enabled global pharmaceutical labeling compliance.
Innovate New Albany has expanded its services to support entrepreneurs inside and outside of the incubator. Services include: Expert Office Hours when business consultants offer advice; Tiger Talks, luncheons featuring innovators who share their expertise and insight; Tiger Workshops, more in-depth learning experiences; and Tiger Tails, where guest speakers share personal stories about the businesses they built.
