In 2016 after a competitive bid process, Hacker Lab was selected to conduct an Entrepreneurship Feasibility Study on the potential of developing an entrepreneurship center and incubator concept, to be located in City Council District 2. This entrepreneurship center and incubator, if deemed feasible, will be designed with the intention of serving the needs of low to moderate income individuals from underserved communities.
This month, Hacker Lab will be conducting outreach and engagement events in the community – specifically around engaging District 2 residents on the topics of entrepreneurship and technology:
- October 7 – bringing an innovation center to Del Paso Heights
- October 12 – Business In A Day Workshop
