Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator

The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) works to accelerate the development of cleantech start-ups by offering flexible office space, CEO coaching and mentoring, and access to a growing network of experts and capital.   Currently, LACI is located in a temporary facility, but in the summer of 2013, the La Kretz Innovation Campus is scheduled to open and will be located on an entire city block in the heart of the Clean Tech Corridor.

In the new La Kretz Innovation Campus, there will be 30,000 square feet of space for LACI, cleantech demonstration centers, R&D labs, conference facilities, work force training facilities as well as space for more mature cleantech companies

LACI is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with Los Angeles County’s  educational and research organizations – UCLA, USC, Caltech and Jet Propulsion Laboratory–as well as the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, the Los Angeles Business Council, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, LADWP and the CRA/LA.
