Award-winning startup labs and offices, ready for immediate use
The Venture Development Center delivers a beautiful, well equipped professional environment previously only available to those who closed a large funding round.
The18,000 sq. ft. workspace won best-in-class recognition because it meets early-stage entrepreneurs’ practical needs and instinctive desires like no other.
You can enjoy casual, cafe-style interactions, but disappear into personalized, private offices when you want to be alone.
There are dedicated labs, both wet and dry, fully furnished and serviced, ready for immediate use. The labs are equipped with benches, fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, and ultra-low temperature freezer. The engineering infrastructure is second to none, and includes high performance computing network.
The vast collaboration area features an open work bar for co-work, soft seating for impromptu team meetings and conversations, and enclosed work pods for scheduled meetings.
The presentation room is used for formal board or investor meetings, but can also transform into an auditorium with glass walls that open for large events. The cafe overlooking the harbor is the heart of the community, where members and their guests gather for open exchange.
The Venture Development Center is located on the University of Massachusetts' waterfront campus in Boston, with all of the amenities you’d expect – food court, fitness club, and a beautiful harbor walk. On the T, it is 8 minutes from South Station. Ample parking is available.
