Chandler Innovations is a city-wide business incubation and entrepreneurial development program sponsored by the City of Chandler and powered by NACET, an Arizona-based non-profit organization that builds and grows startups into viable businesses.
We offer group coaching and one-on-one support to early stage founders, CEOs and entrepreneurs with tech-focused, scalable businesses that will most likely need investment dollars to quickly scale and grow. Short-term office space and collaborative work-space is available for our incubation clients.
Our programs and workshops, funding preparation, advisor network, community partners and connector events provide the boost you need to plan, build, launch and grow your startup into a thriving business.
Our goal is to connect you – our client – with the tools, resources and people you need to successfully navigate the startup process – from solving a problem to developing a minimum viable product (or solution) to taking your solution to market and then scaling your business for growth.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re looking for scalable, tech-focused businesses in Chandler that will most likely need angel and/or venture capital investment to scale and grow quickly.
We work with new founders, serial entrepreneurs and early-stage CEOs to help them navigate the often-rocky path from startup to viable business. Our goal is to support you in finding the capital, customers and connections you need.
Apply today and find out if our program is the next best step for you and your startup!
