BioSci Labs, an incubator for startup companies in science, technology and engineering fields, will hold its first networking event on Tuesday, July 11.
The event, “First Steps to Commercializing Your Invention,” will feature a keynote address by Dr. John Jarrell, owner of BioSci Labs, which launched in April as the state’s first commercial wet-lab space.
In addition to the four commercial laboratories made available for startups in bioscience fields, the 141,000-square-foot BioSci Labs space, formerly occupied by GTECH, also provides co-working space available for rent at between $149 and $995 per month, depending on whether the space is shared or private.
“Our emphasis here is on taking technologies and creating commercially recognizable products around those technologies, and having a resource where that can happen in Rhode Island,” said Jarrell in an interview with Providence Business News. “There are no commercially available wet-lab spaces in Rhode Island.”
