Please join us for a media tour of the Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs, the newest effort by Princeton University to promote innovation and to support and grow the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs, operated by Biolabs (headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts) provides co-working spaces specifically designed to meet the needs of the highest-potential science startups. The Center is available to companies formed by faculty, students and alumni, as well as by members of the wider New Jersey community. Located at Princeton Forrestal Center, the 31,000-square foot incubator offers a variety of shared space such as wet labs for chemical, biological and pharmaceutical development and dry lab space for engineering development, as well as shared office and desk space for resident companies and related ventures. The Center, which opened this month, is equipped with a broad array of premium scientific equipment and will offer additional services and amenities for resident companies.

The newly renovated space is strategically designed to promote collaboration and help startups go further and faster on limited investment capital, enabling a potentially shorter path from proof-of-concept to commercialization. Princeton Innovation Center Biolabs will also host regular educational programming and community networking events. There is ample free parking available.
