The flagship EvoNexus location opened this new larger office Spring 2017 amid the $700 million La Jolla UTC transformation in what has become San Diego's research, life science and tech innovation hub. Close to the prestigious University of California at San Diego and surrounded by world-leading research institutions and the region's anchor tech and life science corporations, EvoNexus is the area's premier life-sciences startup technology incubator.
The custom-designed, 18,000-square-foot space with an open-floor plan space fosters collaboration and is now home to rising life science, tech, software, semiconductor and IoT startups who benefit from the EvoNexus pro-bono model. Startups have use of the start-of-the-art, Class A office and lab space at no cost. Features include lockable hardware development and dry-lab space options for hardware and digital health companies. EvoNexus startups receive mentorship from prominent CEOs and experts and access to capital through its expansive angel network, strategic partnerships and traditional venture capitalists. EvoNexus also provides various, high-value events and programs, such as MarketLink, Special Interest Groups, and Headliners.
EvoNexus formerly had two locations: a life sciences incubator in La Jolla and a software incubator Downtown at The Vine SD. EvoNexus La Jolla UTC has merged its operations, inhabiting a relocated The Vine SD here in La Jolla to focus its resources in a larger, single location.
