What is The Garage?
We fuel transformation. We are the heart of innovation, imagination, and collaboration at Northwestern. We openly welcome all ideas: for profit, nonprofit, arts-based, social impact, or anything else students wish to see come to life.
We bring together a cross-disciplinary community of students, faculty, staff and alumni who all share a passion for building new ideas. The 11,000 square foot space, carved out of the North Campus parking structure, has been home to more than 500 student-founded startups and projects. At the core, The Garage is startup central at Northwestern. We are a community, space, and network of resources for every Northwestern student to learn, iterate, and grow.
WE EMPOWER ENTREPRENEURS WITH WISDOM AND PROGRAMMING TO BUILD SKILLS AROUND CO-CREATION, LEADERSHIP, AND NETWORKING TO MOTIVATE THEM TO BUILD A FUTURE ALL THEIR OWN.
