Following its well established vetting process – that includes its Strategic Funding Partners – EvoNexus anticipates announcing the new class of companies entering its unique program in the fall.
In partnership with the Irvine Company and over two dozen multinational companies in the technology and health sector, EvoNexus offers 40,000 square feet of class office and dry lab space at its three incubator locations: two in San Diego and one in Irvine.
