Nuvodia's 80 employees will join the Innovation Center's 24 current tenants representing innovators in the high-tech, clean tech, life sciences, and education sectors, as well as the recently announced manufacturing startup incubator, Toolbox.
"Nuvodia is thrilled to be joining Spokane's most unique business accelerator," said Jon Copeland, CEO, Nuvodia. "I find it a wonderful coincidence that the history of the Innovation Center building is tied to the industrial revolution and the space is now beautifully reborn to once again enable the same raw spirit of innovation."

Nuvodia is expanding into other areas of medical imaging, such as pathology, where traditional glass slides are now on a digital platform. The company works with customers to access the cloud for data storage, and is currently working with Spokane-based Avista Corp. to migrate the energy grid to the "smart grid."
