A next big thing at IMSA is IN2, a $1.9 M, 6,400 square foot state-of-the-art innovation center. IN2 is designed to ignite collaboration and entrepreneurial activity among students, educators, business and the community to solve real-world problems, design prototypes and launch new ideas to advance the human condition. IN2 focuses on four areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and innovation: entrepreneurship education, teaching and learning, maker movement and diversity. A generous lead gift of $1M by alumnus Steve Chen ‘96 is enabling access to the community and inspiring innovation at IMSA, and in Aurora, the Fox Valley/Western Suburbs, Chicago and beyond.

IN2, the Steve and Jamie Chen Center for Imagination and Inquiry, is looking for two promising early stage ventures to be part of IMSA’s bold new initiative.
IMSA celebrated the 30th anniversary by cutting the ribbons on IN2 Steve and Jamie Chen Center for Innovation & Inquiry and the newly completed science labs. The event, held on March 30, 2017, culminated over three years of researching best practice on innovation centers and raising over $2M to fund IMSA's new innovation center.
