"Many entrepreneurs have credibility in their own fields, but starting a business is a whole new ballgame....The programs offered at Innovation Park have provided our team with invaluable guidance in all these areas for the sole cost of our time and effort. This has allowed Rillea Technologies to grow from start-up into a small business with a strong foundation."
