Entrepreneurial Educational Programs
OBI offers monthly Lunch & Learns on a wide variety of topics of interest to entrepreneurs. We also have a structured 6-month Mentoring Program, an informal Advising Program, Happy Hours for networking, and other events throughout the year. These programs are free of charge.
Co-working Space (Available Now)
OBI has developed a new Digital Health Annex with dedicated desks available for rent on a month-to-month basis.
