UC-Davis, HM.CLAUSE Partner to Open Life Science Innovation Center

University of California, Davis is giving local startups a leg up with a new business incubator space.
The UC Davis-HM.CLAUSE Life Science Innovation Center combines the resources of the university and its corporate partner, seed specialist HM.CLAUSE, to provide much-needed laboratory facilities to help newly-formed companies take root in the region.
The South Davis center’s launch, which will be celebrated tomorrow, is part of the university’s larger effort to provide assistance to campus entrepreneurs — in particular those with technologies generated at UC-Davis.
“Our startups are at their most vulnerable when they take their very first steps out of the familiar environment of the university and into the commercial setting,” says associate vice chancellor Dushyant Pathak. “Access to business incubation space that brings together a diverse range of new ventures, along with structured support and startup resources, is an essential element of seeding the successful businesses of tomorrow. Our startups will grow to make an impact in our region.”
