It’s Time to Build Chicago’s Creative Muscles. Join us at the IAEOU.

Creative muscles come in all shapes and sizes. Some are more developed and some are brand new. Are you ready to build your creative muscles with us at the  IAEOU?

What is the IAEOU you ask and what does it mean?

We are a unique type of business that exists at the intersection of art, science, technology, entrepreneurship and social good. We are a community of like minded artists, scientists and techies who are interested in collaborating and sharing our ideas to make them come to life in our space. Vowels are to words what creativity is to the world~ pretty basic and necessary.

Our Vision
