Award-Winning East Bay Collaborative Lab Space.
Available for discerning [bio | food | green]-tech startups at 2945 Webster Street, Oakland, CA
Oakland offers access to funding, a strong community, talented workforce, affordable costs, and pro-business policies. With a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem and a supportive community, Oakland is a great place for entrepreneurs to start and grow their businesses.
Thus started a search for suitable space in the bay area. After narrowing down to the East Bay, as a preferred area, due to access to reasonable housing (in Oakland), proximity to academic centers (Berkeley, UCSF), companies (in Emeryville), it was clear there was nothing available.
Our vision at Oakland Genomics Center is to
The building is owned by a visionary, Dave, who like our ideas and let us grow into the building. we started out with a single room and brought in more companies and started renting bigger portions of the building, till we took over the whole building.
And Oakland is a great place to call home.
OGC was incredibly valuable for Amaryllis Nucleics. The space and location are fantastic but also the people are incredible. It provided a lot of what I missed from acedemia.
OGC has a fantastic location and is a great place for a Startup!! Circularis’ success relied heavily on the people we met there and the collaborative resources that were shared and organized by the OGC!
OGC was our first lab space – not only did we make our first discoveries there, but we benefited from rubbing elbows with other startups – the OGC alumni is a growing list of successes!
Access to OGC resources and community has been pivotal in much of our platform development work since 2017. If you are looking for the big benefits of community synergy in an affordable package then reach out to OGC!
The space has helped us survive and thrive in the bay area and helped us connect to numerous customers and collaborators.
The OGC is a great environment to incubate your startup. We incubated our startup there all the way to acquisition and our neighbors and Anitha were terrific in sharing advice and resources! An intellectually stimulating environment!
