712 Innovations is here to help your business and employees. To serve our economic development mission, we support our business community by offering tools and resources for meetings, prototyping, and business development.


Membership is offered to your employees as a 100% tax deductible HR Benefit. 712 Innovations provides you brochures for existing employees in print or digital format, and will provide materials for HR to include with new hire packets. As a sponsoring business, you may optionally allow employees to extend the benefit to their family, as well. As a 501(c)3 employees don’t need to worry about this benefit being taxed as income* – you may simply treat the benefit as a result of a partnership and charitable contribution.

You only pay for employees who use the benefit, and we generate employee buy-in to encourage purposeful participation. Employees themselves are responsible for a $25 application fee – which encourages buy in from staff, and reduces under-used memberships. At any time that an employee leaves – just notify us and we will offer to convert their membership to a self-paid membership.

Your employees are treated as full, equal members in our space. This includes access to all resources, restrictions on usage, and adherence to our rules. Our members represent the best and brightest of Topeka – which makes 712 an ideal spot to meet new talent for hiring, develop new ideas for products or services, and also to promote your services to our existing members.

Our mission is to enrich our members, and community. Why not teach employees to think like entrepreneurs, rather than see talent leave because of frustrations with opportunity? We will give your employees every opportunity to learn, grow, and explore their own talents.

Membership at 712 demonstrates your corporate values, allowing your business to enrich employees through offering a non-traditional workspace or after-hours experience in the heart of downtown.

Sponsorship Recognition

In addition to membership for your staff, we offer tiered recognition for our corporate members as sponsors – which scale based with your number of employees. We also factor the dollar amount donated, viewing the smaller of the two. (Figuring a minimum of 10 employees)

   Donations of $50 Per Employee, or $500 (whichever is smaller) – Tiered recognition on our Sponsor Wall, immediately inside our space

   Donations of $100 Per Employee, or $5000 (whichever is smaller) – The above, plus announcement via our marketing channels

   Donations of $200 Per Employee, or $10,000 (whichever is smaller) – The above, plus a Press Release and Recognition Plaque featuring your corporate member number and logo

   Donations of $250 Per Employee, or $20,000 (whichever is smaller) – The above, plus a Press Conference with media invitations – and presentation of an oversized check
