Sync Space Connect Program

Connect and grow.


The connect program is available to companies where we have the ability to provide programming support and implement a pilot opportunity with our partners. These companies have demonstrated the potential for successful growth. Pilot programs for these companies will be substantial opportunities for success without a large investment from Sync Space Entrepreneur Center.

Who Should Apply?
