The city of Las Vegas continues to be a hub for innovation and technology with the opening of the new International Innovation Center @Vegas (IIC@Vegas). The IIC@Vegas is an 11,000-square-foot center for established and emerging tech companies developing smart technologies that align with city of Las Vegas’ priorities. These include, but are not limited to, workforce development, smart technology, at-risk populations, neighborhood development and public safety.
Already home to multiple established or start-up tech companies, IIC@Vegas supports and houses companies in the fields of IoT (internet of things), technology, virtual reality/augmented reality, artificial
Intelligence, cybersecurity, water technology, autonomous vehicles and possibly, sports technology.
This IIC@Vegas is located in the heart of the city’s Innovation District at 300 S. Fourth St., Suite 180.
Las Vegas is an international stage for innovation and technology, hosting the massive Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) shows annually. Building on a strong tech foundation, the city of Las Vegas established an Innovation District in 2015 to create a center for testing groundbreaking technology. This downtown district includes the IIC@Vegas and is a proving ground for collaborative efforts between the city and its new technology partners.
The downtown urban core is transforming into a technology incubator focused on safe, efficient, sustainable and environmentally conscious mobility such as autonomous and connected vehicles and establishing a platform for deploying innovation.
The city of Las Vegas is making major investments to improve motorist mobility and safety, provide reliable transportation choices and showcase technology. With 1,340 miles of streets, the city is investing in efficient vehicular travel, a robust road network and street improvements.
The IIC@ Vegas is already home to multiple companies. These include non-profit, for profit and international companies such as:
- Ubicquia, offers network and IOT products for deploying Smart City, broadband and Small Cell services on existing streetlight infrastructures
- Dyntek, an IT consulting and management firm
- StartupNV, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, engages new and experienced entrepreneurs from a wide variety of industries and business sectors
- NTT, a Japanese-based global provider of information and communications technology solutions partnering with U.S. tech powerhouse Dell Technologies
- Terbine, a company working on the first global exchange for machine-generated data
- SonicWall, an innovator of cybersecurity technology
Once a company’s lease term is complete, the city’s Economic and Urban Development department can work with tenants to secure and move into available space in the downtown Las Vegas area or elsewhere in the city. Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with innovative companies to develop cutting-edge technologies that enhance quality of life for everyone in our city.
