At CIC, we believe in the entrepreneur

We recognize that invention propels innovation, density spurs collaboration, and a shared purpose drives a thriving community. As we race forward into an age of exponential growth and transformation, CIC provides a home from which to work, allowing innovators to easily access resources and create substantive, positive global impact.

CIC works with powerful, local partners to develop the critical networks that entrepreneurs need to grow effectively. For almost two decades, we have focused on strengthening vibrant communities, building collaborative work environments, and creating impactful programming to attract and support the very best entrepreneurs and their teams.

Our clients provide tomorrow’s answers to today’s problems. They renew our economies, create gainful and rewarding employment opportunities, and frequently crack tough problems facing humanity.

Fostering Innovation DistrictS

We weave together a variety of elements to help build and strengthen the local innovation ecosystem. Weekly informal networking, state of the art shared wet lab space, a community of entrepreneurs focused on positive impact, and civic innovation space are some of the important elements that we help unite.


our Impact on the innovation ecosystem

In 1999, “coworking” wasn’t a household term, let alone a standard office option. That year, CIC became the first provider of shared office space in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, now known as the most innovative square mile on the planet. The mission was the same then as it is now: to support entrepreneurs in fixing the world through innovation. As of 2018, over 5,000 companies had chosen CIC as their platform for growth, and we’ve grown along the way, too. Since 2014, we have expanded to six cities with several more campuses under development. Whether looking at our own growth or that of our clients, we find it most meaningful to examine the bigger picture: how our work improves our communities.

CONNECT 2018, our first global impact report, provides an in-depth look at the powerful networks that CIC builds and the people they serve.
