Our first-floor Generator space is opening in May and we are ready to celebrate! The public is invited to join us on Wed., May 22, for our Grand Opening and building-wide Open House. The evening event includes a full list of free activities to highlight many of the things Bounce has to offer, while showcasing our startups in residence.

Agenda:

4:30 p.m. Welcome remarks in The Signal Tree Event Space.

5-8 p.m. Explore the entire building with a variety of different activities:

  • Tours: Take a quick tour of the newly renovated space.
