The Hammond Development Corporation has extended the popular Associate Program to The HUB of Innovation. The Associate Program is a shared office lease option where associate tenants can rent space in a communal office at a more affordable rate than under the full time program. Tenants in the associate program can utilize a designated, shared office during normal business hours and get many of the same services that full time tenants do including access to the network copy machine, a formal business address, consulting services and discounts on incubator classes and programs. Cost is only $100 per month for a one year revolving lease and there are no penalties for stepping up into the full time program. The new associate office will be located in suite 205 and come equipped with a desk, office chair, shared computer, filing/storage cabinet and a phone extension for outgoing calls.
This program has been available under Hammond’s incubation program since 2008 at the Hammond Innovation Center. It has been popuar as a step up program for start-ups who have little working capital and for established contractors who primarily work in the field but need a business address and place to occasionally come in to work.
