The IQ® Resources


The IQ is a place to create opportunities and connect people to the tools and resources they need to achieve success. We believe that if you have an idea, you have a fundamental right to start a business to make it a reality! In the IQ, we celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and creative achievements of our Richardson-based inventors and product makers.

We’re all part of the IQ community, and through programming, education, encouragement, and collaboration, we can build an ecosystem of successful entrepreneurs and companies.

You don’t have to live or work in the IQ to be able to collaborate with us. No matter what brings you here, everyone needs a connection. So come join us!
