The IQ®


The Richardson 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!

The IQ® Brew

Grab your favorite cup of Richardson coffee and join in the conversation. The IQ® Brew is a networking and educational series featuring presentations from entrepreneurs, small businesses and subject-matter experts. The goal of The IQ® Brew is to have the Richardson community learn about what you do, some of the challenges you have faced and how you overcame the challenges to find success.  It’s not a sales pitch, and it’s not an investor pitch. Rather, it is an opportunity to refine your story and have an opportunity to connect with the audience through Q&A.

The IQ® Brew is held every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month (with the exception of November and December due to holidays). Find us on Meetup (link below) to view upcoming speaker and to register. The IQ® Brew is currently in a hybrid format with both in-person and virtual options, and is hosted at The Drawing Board, located at 1900 Jay Ell Drive. Join the conversation today!
