About Purdue Research Park

Whether you are looking for a dynamic place to begin or continue your technology-based company, seeking a dream career or searching for a strong investment opportunity, you’ll find all of this and more within the Purdue Research Park network.

The Purdue Research Park network is the result of Purdue University’s commitment to spur economic growth in Indiana’s high-tech sector. Under development since the late ‘90s by Purdue Research Foundation, a private, nonprofit foundation created to assist Purdue, the park network is focused on companies operating in the arenas of life sciences, homeland security, engineering, advanced manufacturing and information technology.

Our strategy – one that combines award-winning technology transfer and business acceleration programs, flexible leasing plans and human resources, media relations and marketing assistance – has led to explosive growth for individual companies and the largest cluster of technology-based companies in the state for our West Lafayette-based research park.

Today, we welcome high-tech companies to join our growing technology conduit, which includes locations in West Lafayette, Indianapolis, Merrillville and New Albany. We’ve expanded our scope as well as our reach by providing many of our industry-leading amenities and services to every company within our network, not just our client firms. We offer top-notch business plan competitions, internship programs and entrepreneurship academies and the list of services continues to grow.

Clustered together, our firms create an environment conducive to information sharing through networking (“knowledge spillovers’) as well as a larger pool of highly skilled labor. Clustering also encourages the development of additional onsite amenities such as trail systems, fitness centers, daycares, restaurants and other bonuses that make working in the Purdue Research Park network worthwhile.
