UC Merced VentureLab

The UC Merced Venture Lab network is the flagship program of the UC Merced Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program. The incubator network comprises three sites in Modesto, Atwater and Merced. It also supports the Product Incubation Center, the Proof of Concept Fund and Central Valley Ventures, and was designated a National Science Foundation Innovation-Corps Site. The program and network specialize in connecting and building teams to foster innovation and entrepreneurship to spur economic development in the Central Valley. As a community business incubator, we partner with individuals and entities that are interested in starting or growing a business. Through our vast network of partners, mentors and resources, we help new and established companies connect to the right networks to be successful.
