The BioFoundry


Get in Touch

Incubator Program

The BioFoundry program exists to help promising early-stage ventures in biotechnology and innovative cell and gene therapies find a way forward.

Viable startups and scale-ups are matched with customized resources including capital, vetted talent, scale-up assets and mentoring. As those ventures mature, we help them secure the resources they need to grow and facilitate partnerships that lead to successful exits.

We operate with support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration Regional Innovation Strategies (RIS) Program and are managed by the Biopharma division of NJII.
