Our facilities allow startups to be fast, focused, and frugal.


We seek to narrow the gap between small and large companies whether it’s consulting on data, providing valuable customer insight, or sharing go-to market strategies. Our distinguished roster of corporate partners includes Amgen, Celgene, Nitto, and J&J.

Lively Communities

Seminars, happy hours, a cool neighborhood, our onsite café, and our supportive team make those long hours in the lab more fun and they make it easier to recruit team members. Our alums invariably report that our community is one of our most important virtues—one they really value.

Space & Equipment

From bench space to fully equipped core facilities to lab supplies, we set you up with everything you need to succeed. Our goal is to make you so efficient that you can do an experiment on your first day—indeed we’ll give you a bottle of champagne if you do! Our newest campus has 30,000 SF of lab and office space and over $1 million in research equipment to enable awesome for 40 of the most promising life-science startups in the Bay Area.
