What Our Members Are Saying

Working at the iHub has been great for my business. I transitioned to self-employment in 2020. I love the professional environment and location in downtown Lowell. Before joining, I would take the virtual tours imagining what life would be like in the office. I'm glad to have joined and look forward to growing my business with iHub’s support.

At the iHub there is plenty of space around me and the air circulation is great. It feels as safe as working at home and I am more productive here.

I have been working out of the Lowell iHub location for almost 3 years now. The facility is centrally located in downtown Lowell and close to restaurants and shops.

The facility itself is large and clean with plenty of personal space as well as meeting space. There are large conference rooms that can hold 50+ people and individual phone booth rooms for private conversations.

The team that manages the facility is really great. Tom and Lisa are always available to help with any issues. They also plan regular events to help the many companies at the iHub connect socially.

I have worked at the Innovation Hub for the past few years. I have one of the co-working spaces, and it is super clean, modern, and spacious, so you don't feel crowded, which is especially important during COVID. The staff at iHub are friendly, and they are always open to help us and connect us with other entrepreneurs and students. In fact, I've hired several talented interns from the university because of my connections at iHub.

Since my team works remotely, I enjoy going into iHub and interacting with the other entrepreneurs, and it gives me a sense of community.

Since joining the iHub Haverhill, I am able to take advantage Innovation Hub's support network, professional meeting spaces for my customers with great light and views of the Merrimack River, and the fastest internet around while feeling connected to my community that no other co-working space can offer. We love the affiliation with UMass Lowell and we hope that as the business grows we'll be able to use the advanced labs, training facilities and recruit great talent.

The moment I saw that building and how the iHub Haverhill was set up inside, I knew that was the place with such a creative atmosphere. I love networking, connecting and learning from other innovative minded people, and the iHub is the perfect space for all forms of creativity.

"...But also just that connection to community being able to be around, even if its just a few people a day, that makes all the difference in just my well-being and my mindset."

"The UMass Lowell iHub has been a great choice for our company. The building is modern and well-maintained, and the management and staff have been fantastic to work with! Having close access to UMLs great engineering talent, both for internships and full-time opportunities is also a big bonus for us, as is close access to downtown Lowell and the MBTA Commuter Rail. Finally, the flexibility to be able to scale up workspaces as needed is a big plus. The iHub has been a great place for us!"
