The Biotech Connector represents an important opportunity to serve the economic needs of the people of Nebraska through further diversification of Nebraska's economy, and by helping forge and illuminate a pathway to jobs in the biotechnology space for Nebraska students.
The Biotech Connector is 7,700 sq. ft. of well-equipped wet-lab space located on Nebraska Innovation Campus. We provide incubation space and services to bioscience startups and high-growth biotech and research-based businesses.
Wet lab space provides aspiring startups and technology businesses with access to very expensive laboratory equipment that would be outside of the budget of most startups. Lack of access to technology such as this may prevent startups from really taking off in a capital-intensive industry. The Biotech Connector offers businesses room to grow and expand their footprint while keeping consistency in their operations.
NIC is located adjacent to, and within biking distance of, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and within 50 miles of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, providing opportunities to connect with research partnerships, qualified employees and motivated students. Our intentionally designed environment with strategically placed open spaces beautifully lends itself to the sharing of ideas and their synergistic development. NIC provides the opportunity to become affiliate employees of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, complimentary access to University of Nebraska–Lincoln libraries, access to students, faculty and facilities, convenient bus transportation and complimentary Wi-Fi in common spaces at NIC and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
