Innovation DuPage (ID) is a non-profit venture that unites entrepreneurs and small business owners with the people, resources and programs that help them grow

We connect our members with vetted mentors who can help establish a strong foundation as they rapidly scale. We are a place to belong, offering workshops and inclusive co-working. We are a community, a place to try new things and build on your ideas.


The ID Network is extensive. Members collaborate across a collection of business, academic, research and government partners. ID supports the entrepreneurial community, enhances regional prosperity, attracts world-class talent and drives sustainable economic growth.
