Toolbox's Tenants

The Toolbox is home to a diverse group of tenants. In addition to the projects being accelerated within our space, The Toolbox houses research and development projects, growing companies, and new startups. Each tenant brings a unique set of skills and experiences that contribute to the overall collaborative value of The Toolbox environment. Our tenants learn from each other, support our startup projects, and participate in the R&D studies going on at The Toolbox; all while working hard to continue growing their own projects and businesses. That's just one of the many things that makes The Toolbox so unique.
