Just a few blocks from UF, you can travel quickly between campus and your startup’s lab or office. Abundant free parking, bike racks and showers make the trip even easier, no matter how you travel. Through the Gator 1 card provided to resident startups, you’ll have access to the vast wealth of scientific and business information in the UF library system.
Our fully staffed reception desk, 24-hour secured card access and comfortable lobby give you peace of mind and a relaxed place for conversation and collaboration. Conference rooms equipped with videoconferencing capabilities project a positive image and instill confidence in potential investors, collaborators and employees. Relax in the scenic Innovation Garden or take in a game of foosball in the client break room.
By offering all-inclusive rental rates, rather than traditional triple-net commercial leases, we ease the financial burden on you and provide one-bill convenience. In addition to fully furnished office spaces with desks, chairs, storage, filing and guest seating, rates also include maintenance, use of common areas, property tax and utilities. Short-term leases allow flexibility and minimize financial commitment.
As your company grows, you can expand your space without physically moving to another location. The “grow-as-you-go” philosophy is perfectly suited to businesses with modest initial needs and exceptional potential for expansion.
Labs have access to biological safety cabinets, fume hoods, DI water, vacuum, gas, autoclave and other essential equipment. Laboratory inspections are provided by UF’s Environmental Health and Safety department to ensure compliance with UF, state and federal regulations.
You will have access to copiers, printers and fax machines on a high-speed network. Phones and data lines are available as needed for an economical flat rate with no external contracts required.
