The UMass Lowell Innovation Hubs provide startup programming and access to the UMass Lowell's faculty and research resources, as well as collaboration with mentors and sponsors.

Our spaces address the needs of "open innovation" startups by offering them work and laboratory space and access to office resources in the short term, rather than long-term, expensive business leases.

A startup may only need one desk and internet access for six months, then a private office and lab space for a year, then room for six employees. Many startups like to locate with other startups – where they learn from, and share with each other. Our two facilities - at 110 Canal St. Lowell and 2 Merrimack Street, Haverhill - offer these options, along with the support of one of the region's premier research universities.
