Who We Are

We help startups succeed.

In March 2012, the Chester County KIZ and the Delaware County KIZ consolidated to form the Ideas x Innovation Network (i2n), now a Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) initiative. i2n represents the many individuals and resources committed to supporting innovation in our region.

We work together to provide entrepreneurs the funding, workspace, guidance, and key connections they need to establish and grow their business.


The mission of the Ideas x Innovation Network (i2n) is to make southeastern Pennsylvania the best possible place for early-stage and technology-driven companies to start, grow, and thrive.


Through the work of i2n, the entrepreneurs, innovators, and startups of southeastern Pennsylvania have all the resources, knowledge, and funding necessary to become successful, commercially viable enterprises and thereby make a positive impact on society and our regional economy.
