Collaborate on Your Next Venture with Other Big Thinkers

“Innovation comes from people meeting up in the hallways or calling each other at 10:30 at night with a new idea.”

- Steve Jobs


Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook in a Harvard dorm room and grew it into a company with a market cap of almost $400 billion.

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in a garage, building it into one of the world’s most profitable firms.

The apartment of Airbnb’s founders was the company’s first office—and product. The home-sharing startup is now valued at $30 billion. 

Now, imagine what your venture could achieve with a workspace as ambitious as you. 

INGUARD has opened Innovate @ INGUARD, a state-of-the-art innovation space—free to all experimenters, pioneers and big thinkers—at our Downtown Wabash headquarters.
