Bridgeport Innovation Center Welcomes Surge of New Business Tenants

Bridgeport, CT, April 23, 2015 –(– Every spring, Carrie Cravalho can’t seem to get off the phone.

As Leasing Manager of the Bridgeport Innovation Center, Cravalho knows that spring is a popular time for businesses to launch, develop and flourish. But this year is different- there has been no end to calls from prospective business tenants.

With a significant increase in interest, the Bridgeport Innovation Center has been offering weekly tours. In addition, they addressed a need for collaboration space with a renovated meeting room featuring a 20-foot conference table, available for use for meetings by any tenant.

“Our goal is value… and we offer this in a variety of ways,” said Sam Pierpont, owner of the Bridgeport Innovation Center.

“Small businesses, artists, community centers, and warehousing are just a few of the types of business that take advantage of the loft spaces for rent. Most loft spaces feature high ceilings, large windows, wood floors, and brick accents; not to mention the affordable price per foot. We also offer affordable storage, small offices, and warehousing with loading-dock access,” said Pierpont.

Why are businesses choosing The Bridgeport Innovation Center?

Part of the Bridgeport Innovation Center’s growing popularity may be caused by a staggering increase of commercial rental prices south of Bridgeport, CT and in New York.

“We ask every new tenant why they ultimately decided to join our community. Their answers are usually value and location. Our prospective tenants are always surprised at how spacious, bright, and affordable our spaces are. And who wouldn’t appreciate the easy access to I-95?” said Cravalho.

In August 2014, Ante Kolanovic chose The Bridgeport Innovation Center as the location of his web design and digital marketing company, The Web Studio.

“One of the best parts about the Innovation Center is that we can come and go as we need,” said Kolanovic. “As business owners, we often work into the night. The Innovation Center has given us a quiet, bright, spacious workplace that we can access 24/7.”

Kolanovic also chose the Innovation Center because of the affordable rent.

“As a new business, our objective is to maximize profits, so we’re not looking to spend most of our budget on renting office space,” said Kolanovic. “Plus, we feel comfortable here.”

The Bridgeport Innovation Center offers space from 400 square feet to 20,000 square feet. The Center is a secure and enclosed community featuring 11 buildings. Rent includes free parking, use of a dumpster, 24/7 secure and patrolled access, and use of the conference room.
