In early July, Cal State LA launched the LA BioStart program - a 5-week bioscience entrepreneur boot camp - out of the university's LA BioSpace Incubator. The boot camp is a collaborative effort between Cal State LA, the Biocom Institute, and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI). The program, funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration, provides training, mentoring, and business knowledge workshops to start-up companies and other early stage entrepreneurs.
The first cohort consists of eleven participants and applications are being accepted for the Winter 2018 cohort. The LA BioStart training is offered at no cost and led by top industry experts. Workshops cover a wide range of topics related to bioscience business, business fundamentals, and essential leadership skills.
