Ignition Park is a technology park under development in South Bend, Indiana, on as much as 180 acres of land owned by the City of South Bend.
Ignition Park is one of the two locations in South Bend that make up Indiana's first two-site State-Certified Technology Park, which was forged through the City of South Bend's partnership with Notre Dame, local economic development groups, and the state of Indiana. The other is Innovation Park at Notre Dame, located on 12 acres on the city's northeast side across from the Notre Dame campus.
Successful companies formed at Innovation Park are encouraged to move to Ignition Park, yet continue to receive support services and other benefits from being part of the same state-certified technology park. Planning is under way at Ignition Park for the siting of 3 million to 3.5 million square feet of high-tech, office and support space. In addition the City is working with the public and private research sectors to establish prototyping facilities at Ignition Park, which early stage companies can take advantage of.
