The City of Shakopee, in collaboration with Scott County, is requesting proposals from qualified firms to complete a feasibility study for a region-wide Innovation Center. The feasibility study is the first step in evaluating the viability of implementing an Innovation Center within Scott County. The feasibility study will analyze the market demand for an Innovation Center with a Post-Secondary educational component and the potential economic impact that it might produce, and if feasible, develop a business plan and model for operation.
As part of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan update, the consultants found that there may be a market for both coworking space along with the need for supportive space for startups and entrepreneurs. Post-secondary education has been a need identified for the region since there are no easily accessible locations for the population or businesses.
Five hard copies and a thumb drive containing the proposal must be submitted in an envelope identified by “Innovation Center RFP”. Proposals must be submitted to and received by the City of Shakopee by 4 p.m., March 5, 2019.
Proposals must be submitted to the following address:
City of Shakopee
Attn: Jenn Brewington, Economic Development Specialist
485 Gorman St.
Shakopee, MN 55379
Proposals will be reviewed during the month of March and an award made to be started by the end of May 2019.
