Our vision is to become an integral part of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation ecosystem in Bellingham and Whatcom County.  We envision supporting existing work through partnering, as well as offering unique value by filling in where missing pieces of our ecosystem exists and where its consistent with our purpose.

In January 2017, we announced our 5 strategic program paths.  We are actively following these paths to build on the success of the first two years of foundation building.  Each offers students, faculty and staff exciting opportunities to engage with IDEA to make entrepreneurial and innovative change happen.
