Hamilton Collaborative

The Hamilton Collaborative is located at 5401 Hamilton Avenue | Cleveland, OH 44114

Ingenuity Cleveland is a founding partner of the Hamilton Collaborative. We are redefining growth and innovation as an open intentional community, managed cooperatively. We provide tools, space and knowledge to a broad community.

IngenuityLabs @ the Hamilton Collaborative supports and encourages artisans and innovators working in Cleveland. Our incubator provides resources and networking opportunities with an eye toward broader efforts to attract and retain talent; promote a culture of creativity; build spaces for technological innovation; foster entrepreneurship, especially among traditionally excluded populations; and connect area youth and young adults. We also hold weekly workshops with a committed group of creatives, The Ingeneers.

 With the partners below, we are building a dynamic, economically interlinked community hub. Check back often to learn about our classes, programs and events.


3 Barn Doors is a custom design/build furniture company.  Its goal is to work together with clients by coming up with unique designs or new pieces of furniture to give their space a completely new vibe. We can build and create new spaces in homes, restaurants, bars, you name it.



Driven by a passion for new technology, material honesty, efficiency and craft, Architecture Office pursues a rigorous design practice which evaluates client goals, site, and program to develop site specific design solutions which are both timeless and contemporary. We reduce elements of style to their functional origins to create works of art which exhibit clear spatial intent.


Since 1997, MorrisonDance has integrated the art of movement within cross-disciplinary collaborations, continuously challenging the traditional understanding of dance. The small non-profit dance company gets its unique strength from performers trained in a variety of movement arts willing to stretch their abilities through presentations in alternative venues and through experimental presentations combining nature, technology, and other artistic disciplines.



ReBuilders XChange is a different kind of architectural salvage retailer.  Of course, you can find all manner of treasure – from antique doors, to soapstone counters, to old bank vaults.  But you can also bring in your antiques or architectural treasures from your rehab or demolition and sell it on consignment.  Builders and Demolition companies take less trips to the scrap yard and more trips to ReBuilder’s XChange.




Rustbelt Riders Composting is a worker-owned organic waste removal service available to Northeast Ohio businesses, schools, and institutions. Its mission is to create wealth from waste through the conversion of waste food into value added products.



Skidmark Garage, a community-access motorcycle garage, opened in 2015.  Skidmark offers its tools, space, and community of knowledge/help to help members fix their rides. It’s not just guys, and it’s not just guys living in apartments without garages. It’s riders. Skidmark appeals to a wide range of riders: guy, girl, newbie, vet, rich, poor, sober, boozer, smoker, tinkerer, inventor, 20 something, 60 something, black, white. Skidmark is truly a no-collar community that thrives on helping each other out, getting dirty, jamming tunes, and riding.


Soulcraft Cleveland, a community-access woodshop and makerspace. Soulcraft is about re-discovering the dynamic value of working with one’s hands and the creative community which naturally arises when a group of people engage in such a discovery. Offering group classes, memberships, rentable studio space and one-on-one instruction in fine woodworking and a variety of additional artisan crafts, Soulcraft offers myriad tools to not only acquire new skills, but a new attitude toward learning.
