Life Science

Within the emerging Life Science District, a new incubator at 3160 Porter Drive accelerates innovative life science start-ups that spin out of the University’s academic labs. The incubator is the central location for Stanford faculty to commercialize their R&D.

Alexandria Center for Life Science at Stanford Research Park provides a range of lab spaces that help support scientist-entrepreneurs through multiple growth stages, provide flexible, move-in-ready lab and office space, as well as strategic programming and access to seed capital. The facility will also offer lab suites for maturing companies.

Having an expanded life science-focused community close to campus complements existing efforts within the School of Medicine to translate basic science discoveries into new therapies. As new technologies, devices, treatments and therapies move from ideas to labs to applications in the real world, it is important to have spaces that can adapt to support this development.


This flexibility and proximity to campus will greatly benefit Stanford faculty and other entrepreneurs, and provide them with a supportive community and shared resources to facilitate their new ventures.

Silicon Valley is home to numerous accelerators and incubators, but perhaps none is as unique as one located right in the heart of Stanford Research Park: StartX.

StartX is a nonprofit accelerator in Stanford Research Park whose mission is to accelerate the development of Stanford University’s top entrepreneurs. This mentorship-focused enterprise takes zero equity, and of the over 300 companies launched there, 87% are still going strong.

StartX is exceptional by several measures: The average amount of capital that its founders raise ($4.5 million), as well as the number of StartX-launched companies that are still operating and successful (87%).

However, what truly makes StartX stand out is its business model: StartX operates as a mission-based nonprofit and takes zero equity from the companies that go through its program. Yes, you read that right. Zero equity.
