Innovation Ecosystem

CBiRC has established partnerships with multiple local entities creating powerful relationships within a pool of “Ecosystem Partners”. This is augmented by the addition of several internationally renowned venture capitalists as “Innovation Partners” and “Industry Venture Members“, creating a network of partnerships supporting the innovation ecosystem.

Collectively these partnerships combine with the Center and Industry Members to create an “Open Innovation Ecosystem” that brings significant opportunities for early-stage innovations to take shape. CBiRC fosters this innovation and entrepreneurship through its BioBased Foundry by providing a foundation of constructive support for early-stage startups or small entity growth and development.
