Wow, it’s hard to believe, but it’s here – the Grand Opening and Open House of the first floor at Bounce Innovation Hub! We have incorporated the work of dozens of local artists and makers into our largest design plan yet and can’t wait for everyone to see it. There are a lot of events planned for May 22 and we’d love if you could come and be a part of it. The schedule below is just a sample of the events planned that day:


4:30 p.m. Welcome remarks in The Signal Tree Event Space.

5-8 p.m. Explore the entire building with a variety of different activities:

·         Tours: Take a quick tour of the newly renovated space.

·         eSports Lab: Join The University of Akron eSports team for free play! Learn about eSports, meet the team, and get a chance to play some of the more popular games on our new state-of-the-art computers.

·         The Creative Co-op at Bounce: Check out Bounce’s new makerspace and creative workshop with hands-on demos with our 3D printers and other equipment.

·         Building Open House: Travel upstairs to floors 2-9 to learn more about our startups in residence and what they’re working on here at Bounce.

·         Scavenger Hunt: Local art is everywhere on our first floor! See if you can unravel our clues and take a deeper look at the art we incorporated into the space. Participants also win an extra prize for playing!

·         Demo Day: From 6-7 p.m., see what we “really” do here at Bounce with Demo Day, where five software companies in our accelerator programs pitch to a live audience for investment.
