Co-Working Space, Business Incubator & Accelerator
Wayne County and the Wayne Economic Development Corporation launched The Stourbridge Project in 2016, gradually creating three different tiers of support for developing businesses. This was accomplished through a comprehensive collaboration, including the help of financial assistance from the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, the Appalachian Regional Commission and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Office of Rural Development.
The Stourbridge Project features a co-working space, incubator spaces that can grow with your company until your business is ready to build or rent its own space. Specialized software, equipment and programs are available to the public and to support entrepreneurs. The resources include a digital media studio and a prototyping lab with 3D printers, a CNC Shop Bot, a laser etcher and cutter and more. Start-up assistance, mentoring and business development services and seminars are available in groups and one to one.
The high-speed, Internet service offers one gig for downloads and uploads.
Access to the co-working space on the ground floor is free during regular business hours from 8:30 am to 6 pm, after hours access is available for $25 a month or $240/year.
