Imagine a place where the best of entrepreneurship and innovation in higher education meets the best of entrepreneurship and innovation in our community.  Welcome to the IDEA Lab!

In late 2016, IDEA joined WWU's College of Science and Engineering, Bellingham Technical College and the Foundry Makers Space in the Technology Development Center located in the heart of the industrial waterfront.  All with excellent support from the Port of Bellingham.

The IDEA Lab connects WWU to our community in an ideation space, makerspace, and learning center.  Here students, faculty, staff, and community members can share ideas of all types, work them into ideas worth pursuing, build and test prototypes and wrap business models around them to bring important solutions to the world.
