In July 2014, CIC-St. Louis was selected by CET to manage the Innovation Center’s facilities, which have been rebranded as CIC@CET. CIC is a recognized global leader in smart space design and service delivery for emerging technology businesses. CIC@CET is a 88,000 sq ft incubator/accelerator facility offering wet and dry labs, production and office space, shared equipment, conference rooms and amenities.
In the newly renovated CIC@CET there is both coworking and shared lab space. Private office and lab space is also available to accommodate larger ventures and growing companies so they can scale within the Community.
Resident companies also benefit from Cortex’s affiliations with Washington University, St. Louis University, University of Missouri St. Louis and the Donald Danforth Plant and Science Center. This includes an agreement that streamlines tenant access to selected core research and development facilities at these institutions. These core facilities provide startup and growing companies at CIC@CET with access to equipment and expertise that are critically important to scaling high-growth med-tech and bioscience ventures.
