We have built a space that helps to de-risk growth and provide mentoring for biomedical startups
Some of the unique features of the OBI space are:
- Unique Laboratory Space: 20,000 sq. ft. new BSL-2 labs, offices and meeting space
- Shared Scientific Equipment: Access to cost-prohibitive shared equipment (fume hood, tissue culture facilities, heavy equipment and meeting space

- Collaboration: Share resources, ideas and space with regional incubators and accelerators. Networking Events, Startup CEO Roundtables, Lunch and Learn Opportunities

Coworking Space (Available now)
OBI has developed a new Digital Health Annex with dedicated desks available for rent on a month-to-month basis. Our shared space is a great way to collaborate with other Digital Health IT companies while still having a place to call your own.

In addition to the coworking space in the annex, the OBI has private offices and lab space. Currently all of these spaces are occupied, but if you are interested in learning more about our private offices or lab space, please feel out this form or join us during our next facility tour.
