Incubators

Incubators support life sciences related research, applied research and commercialization. While incubators vary in services, most include access to wet lab space and offices, connections to research and development partners and general business services. Additional services can include purchasing power and professional management that provides safety protocols, permits and facilities management. Incubators have been effective in helping companies start in a cost-efficient manner when they have a handful of employees. These companies need access to a small amount of space with flexible terms to test foundational ideas that, with positive data, could lead to essential funding from the government as well as from angel and venture investors. In the following snapshots, we feature four different incubators: CoLaborator, Janssen Labs, and QB3.
