How We Do it

CVEP brings together the region’s partners – including businesses of every size, the nine cities, unincorporated areas, the tribal governments, regional governments, and the Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau – to make our region a better place to prosper in a year round economy.

Palm Springs and Palm Desert iHubs

The Innovation Hubs (iHubs) are business incubators for entrepreneurs. Funded by the cities in which they are located, and Wells Fargo, and managed by CVEP, they focus on early-stage businesses in the fields of renewable energy, health and medicine, and digital technology.

They are a unique environment where entrepreneurs, investors, academics and government come together to collaborate, create, and grow.
