We can’t imagine a more perfect formula for successful entrepreneurship than the outstanding work ethic forged in the Midwest combined with the infinite optimism of a Green Bay Packers fan!

To be honest, we got tired of losing all our best innovators to the East and West Coasts. So, we did something about it.

Startup Hub Entrepreneurial Success Starts Here

Whether a solo venture or an idea that requires space and staffing, every new startup needs the kind of support that comes from having taken that journey already.

Instead of competing in a cutthroat, shark-tank-type environment, the Startup Hub fosters collaboration and support for anyone looking to transform an idea into a viable business – or looking for guidance to grow or scale an existing business. We give you the tools, the network and sometimes even the financial backing to make it all happen.

What is Startup Hub?

Originally created in 1987 as a business incubator, the Startup Hub adopted its current name in 2019, growing into its modern 50,000 sq. ft facility on the west side of Green Bay.

Powered by the Greater Green Bay Chamber, the Startup Hub can provide both the physical space a new business might need plus serve as a behind-the-scenes hub for resources, advice, capital and connections.

One of the coolest things about housing your new enterprise either virtually or physically in one of our spaces is the energy generated by gathering so many innovative spirits together.

They say success speaks for itself, so listen to what these Startup Hub Success stories have to say about their experiences:
