Launched in 2017, InNEVator is fueling the creation of successful, early-stage startups and helping to build a thriving technology ecosystem in Nevada. We work closely with carefully selected companies solving important problems and having the potential to scale. While most accelerators manage the masses, we take a more hands-on approach. We provide a team of experts and their undivided attention to founders and their teams. We have the resources to accelerate success through our collaboration with industry leaders, the Innevation Center, and the University of Nevada, Reno.
Our Core Beliefs
We are a group of founders helping founders. We are cost-conscious and we are savvy.
Collaboration is Critical
