Innovation DuPage, the new business incubator and accelerator developed by College of DuPage in partnership with Choose DuPage, Rev3 and the Village of Glen Ellyn, received additional praise Dec. 12 in the form of a formal proclamation from the DuPage County Board.

Presented by DuPage County Board President Dan Cronin, the proclamation offered the board's support for Innovation DuPage, which will connect small businesses with the necessary resources to thrive and stimulate job growth.

"We have a strong belief that the education, training and the extraordinary workforce of this district are absolutely the formula for success and leadership within the state and, indeed, within the nation," said College of DuPage President Dr. Ann Rondeau in accepting the proclamation. "Innovation DuPage has been an enormous teaming that includes county, village and college experts. I am grateful for all the hard work that has gone into this endeavor and excited for the possibilities it brings to DuPage County."

Dr. Rondeau was joined by Choose DuPage President John Carpenter, Glen Ellyn Village President Diane McGinley and DuPage County Economic Development Committee Chair Tonia Khouri. Innovation DuPage is expected to be housed in a portion of the Glen Ellyn Civic Center.
