Monthly office rents include utilities, common area, Internet and office furniture. Rents for manufacturing spaces include access to the common areas and Internet. Utilities are separate for manufacturing bays 150, 170, and 190. For more information on the standard rates and fees check out the JIC leasing information webpage here.
The Janesville Innovation Center has three leasing objectives. One is to support start-up companies that have the capacity to create jobs and expand within the Janesville area.
The second objective is to provide short-term space to existing companies for product or process development. The third objective is to provide space to companies that have decided to locate in Janesville and need temporary space while their facilities are being constructed or renovated.
The JIC facility is owned by the City of Janesville but managed by a non-profit entity named Janesville Innovation, Inc. (JII). The JII Board of Directors is responsible for managing the internal workings of the JIC including tenant selection, finances, tenant technical assistance support and other administrative responsibilities.
