The I-270 Innovation Labs is the right place to grow. There’s no need to start from scratch, commit to a fixed location or floor plan, or spread yourself too thin. Focus your resources on discovery and development. Invest more in talent and science, and less in space and equipment.

Many similar facilities in the BioHealth Capital Region, which are run by local or state governments, can be more restrictive in leasing terms and will take equity from companies if they choose to move outside of the jurisdiction.  There is no equity assignment demanded from members of I-270 Innovation Labs, so that members can focus on making their business great and retain independence on where they move to next.  

Members of the I-270 Innovation Labs can access high-quality, purpose-built, Flex Wet Labs and Dry Labs, multimodal working spaces, and right-sized, key resources. If you need even greater flexibility, start out with an Individual Flex Bench, and get to innovate alongside Members at a similar growth stage and beyond, including established Enterprises.
