The Incubator at CNSI

Accelerating the growth and success of entrepreneurial companies by providing high-quality, affordable facilities, services, and expertise in a vibrant community of innovation.


Admission to the Incubator is through a competitive review process. We focus our resources on the most promising companies. The process starts with an online application (hyperlink). Applications will be reviewed by the Incubator team. Selected applicants will be invited to present to the Incubator Selection Committee. Applicants will be notified of their status once the Committee has come to a final decision.

  • Company founded by UCLA faculty, staff, student, or alumnus (less than 5 years since graduation)
