It’s been over a year since Mayor Muriel Bowser broke ground on the new Inclusive Innovation Incubator based on Howard University’s campus, and now the space is getting ready to open its doors.

The incubator which, as the name suggests, aims to host and support diverse entrepreneurs, will officially open to the public with a “Week of Welcome” starting April 17. The week will feature a total of 30 events in the space — everything from coding classes to meetups and even a class on fitness for entrepreneurs. Most events are free and will give the D.C. startup (or would-be startup) community a chance to get a feel for the place.

The space was designed by D.C.-based architecture firm Wingate Hughes and, as Technical.ly discovered at a recent preview gathering, it has come a long way from the days of hardhats and shovels. The task that remains, though, is truly giving the incubator life — and that depends on all of us.
