LA Biolabs (https://www.biolabs.io/la) is the premier provider of co-working space for life science start-ups with locations in all major biotechnology hubs across the U.S. Their goal is to change how scientific entrepreneurs do business by building an ecosystem that empowers them to grow quickly while also maximizing capital.
BioLabs at the Lundquist Institute opened in 2019 with 18,000 sq. ft. of lab and office space in the new Lundquist Institute’s Medical Research Laboratory on the Harbor-UCLA campus in Torrance, CA.
By taking advantage of over $1.3 million in common use equipment, Athos Therapeutics Inc. has been able to get a jump start without worrying about many of the operational obstacles they’d face on their own. Through BioLabs LA’s network and programming, Athos can make connections and get insight into the many topics’ entrepreneurs need to be successful. Starting a company takes a village, and the member community at BioLabs LA allows researchers, executives, and scientists the opportunity to be surrounded by their peers and colleagues. Interactions within the space, and on campus, spark ideas that lead to collaborations, pose solutions to challenges, and offer a shared perspective along the startup journey.
