The division focuses on technology gaps in the private and public sectors and uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to create solutions. The incubator program is currently exploring technology solutions in hospitality, the opioid crisis, contact centers, financial regulation, e-commerce, among other areas, according to Stellar.

Stellar’s COO Joshua Sircus said about the program:

"At Stellar, we are constantly looking at technology gaps and market opportunities. The incubator enables us to seek solutions," says Joshua Sircus, COO. "Stellar iDea Labs is unique in that it allows all employees and consultants to bring their ideas in-house using company resources."
