Computer storage specialist ScaleMatrix, a local startup that’s grown rapidly in the last few years, is opening a startup accelerator and coworking space for life science and technology companies.
The new project will be called the ScaleMatrix Launch Center, and it comes with a few unusual perks for startups. Unlike traditional coworking spaces, the Launch Center has a Genomic Science CLIA-certified laboratory, ideal for helping early-stage companies in the fields of genomics, molecular diagnostics, bioinformatics, and personalized medicine (all fields, by the way, that are growing in San Diego).
The facility will also be directly connected to ScaleMatrix’ data center, which provides reliable, low-latency access to enterprise-class computing, storage, cloud, and connectivity resources necessary for big data companies and cloud-computing applications.
The Launch Center joins a few other accelerator organizations catering to technology and biotechnology startups, including Johnson & Johnson Innovation’s JLABS and the recently-opened BioLabs San Diego.
The Launch Center will be located at 5775 Kearny Villa Rd, San Diego, 92123.
