Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball
Kimball, in partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers, created the Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball, a state-of-the-art, smart workplace that is housed inside of their newly opened Training Complex. The Innovation Lab is the ultimate representation for the workplace of the future. The smart interiors seamlessly connects people with space, enabling more effectiveness of the occupants, including the advisors who will provide consulting and mentoring to the entrepreneurs working in the lab.
The Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball is focused on rapidly growing, early-stage companies in the consumer product space and provides speed and flexibility, individualized, industry-leading consulting and the opportunity for direct investment to participants. The speed and adaptability of a startup business requires a shift in paradigm of how a smart workspace should serve the needs of the people who occupy the space. The selected companies get to experience the emerging, smart workplace of the future.
In addition to receiving office space in the Innovation Lab, selected companies have access to industry experts, executives and financiers; third-party branding, marketing and legal services; free meals and housing in the Philadelphia-area; and the opportunity to pitch industry-leading investors and venture capital firms.
"Our partnership with the Sixers and our joint creation of this lab epitomizes the thought leadership, and genuine innovation that is fueling the success of Kimball" states Mike Wagner, President of Kimball. "We couldn’t ask for a better place to host prospective clients, to showcase our latest in product innovation, and provide a real-life view of how Kimball researches and improves workplace performance and enhances corporate culture."
