Request for Information
Rev3 is a co‐working space/incubator that is seeking a permanent home in DuPage County, Illinois. Rev3 is an entity that’s focused on building financially viable businesses in the area. The facility will coalesce around passionate entrepreneurs, whether they are developing businesses on their own or commercializing technology invented at one of the area’s many universities, federal laboratories, or established companies, and who are committed to the success of their businesses and need affordable access to a range of equipment and expertise that does not exist in one place anywhere else in Illinois. Rev3 will be a hybrid space that will have the typical accoutrements of a co‐working space along with a machine shop and assembly area for light manufacturing. Rev3 will be suitable for entrepreneurs who are developing software as well as those making physical products that need access to machine tools, woodworking tools, electronic test benches, 3D printers and so forth.
Rev3 is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not‐for‐profit. Its efforts are being spearheaded by Choose DuPage, the economic development agency for DuPage County although eventually Rev3 will be a separately governed and managed organization.
Please send information that clearly describes the features of your space and the terms under which Rev3 can lease it. If your space is even close to the requirements above, we’d like to know about it. Responses to this RFI are due by January 31, 2014.
