(Janesville, WI) City of Janesville

N1 Critical Technologies, Inc. is graduating from the Janesville Innovation Center (JIC) and relocating to downtown Janesville. To accommodate the company’s growth, N1 will be renovating the former Red Cross building and preparing space for the company’s expanding staffing levels, which are anticipated to increase to more than 30 jobs over the next few years.

In October 2015, N1 joined the JIC as a single-office tenant and then eventually grew to occupy five additional office and manufacturing suites, respectively. According to Nate Ellsworth, N1’s founder and President, “The JIC filled critical N1 needs. Its flexible space was important because we grew very quickly and needed additional offices, as well as a manufacturing suite. The business assistance and mentoring support has been extremely valuable, as it continues to guide our operations. The JIC has been great to work with.”

The JIC Board of Directors and staff are proud to be part of N1’s success story. “It is exciting to see N1 start with a solid business concept, launch it successfully and then grow it. They are a great example of what the JIC was created to do”, said Mike Mathews, JIC Operations Manager. “With N1 graduating, the JIC will be able to accommodate other emerging or existing businesses that will benefit from the JIC’s ecosystem.”

In addition to providing office and/or manufacturing space, the JIC offers a portfolio of consultative services, for both JIC and non-JIC tenants, ranging from evaluating business concepts to facilitating succession planning.
