Incubators and accelerators
Campus incubators and accelerators provide resources to foster the growth of entrepreneurial start-up companies and early stage technology research projects that originate at UC. This hands-on supplement to the standard education and research regimen speeds the transfer of innovative UC ideas to high-impact technology development and commercialization. This furthers UC’s public service mission to meet society’s needs while supporting its ongoing research and education goals.
Each entity listed provides different resources. This may include free or affordable workspace, access to equipment, mentor support (campus entrepreneurs, faculty, alumni, external entrepreneurs) and funding.
