CHANDLER, Ariz. - In the heart of Downtown Chandler, entrepreneurs will find the Arizona State University Chandler Innovative Center. Established in 2013, ACIC pairs up start-up centric programming and resources with a one-of-a-kind workspace.
"We have resources, we have mentors, we can help you every step of the way, but you are really going to have to put in the work and that weeds out people who are ready, versus people who are not ready," said CEO Diana White.
White, a businesswoman herself, describes the Chandler Innovations incubator as a community or one-stop-shop for companies, founders and entrepreneurs who live, work, or own property in Chandler that have innovative ideas.
