The Tolloty Technology Incubator is designed to support entrepreneurial efforts with dedicated business incubator space for start-up companies linked to high-tech research, development and intellectual property enterprises.
Encompassing 27,000 square feet, the Incubator is focused upon energy efficiency with LEED Certification and excellent use of alternative energy resources and conservation practices. The latest technologies also provide WIFI, VOIP and fiber connect to a big pipe OC-192 system for robust data, image and research applications.
The grounds surrounding the Tolloty Technology Incubator have a landscaping plan that capitalizes on the natural setting with picnic areas, walking trails and relaxing waterscapes.
Clients of the Tolloty Technology Incubator have convenient, nearby access to Kent State Tuscarawas' Science and Advanced Technology Center with its ATC Accelerator for product testing, prototype development equipment, rapid prototyping equipment, plastic injection-molder and robotic systems machinery. Buckeye Career Center’s high school and adult education programs in the latest technologies are also adjacent to the Incubator. The facility is equipped to handle the most demanding of IT applications, as well as a fully equipped, high-tech wet lab for product research and development.
The Incubator is made possible through an Ohio Department of Development Job Ready Sites grant, a US Department of Commerce-Economic Development Administration (EDA) grant, the Appalachian Regional Commission and the Governor's Office of Appalachia, and additional programs through the Ohio Department of Development. The Tolloty Technology Incubator is an Ohio Job Ready Site for Smart Office Development. Additional funding has also been received by Dominion East Ohio Gas and the Rosenberry Foundation.
