This is the second consecutive year LACI has received an honor from UBI’s world-renowned rankings, as the 4-year old incubator was recognized as the #6 Incubator globally by UBI in 2014. LACI has proven a successful incubation and commercialization model and established itself as a global leader among cleantech incubators, helping over 40 companies, who have raised $60 million and have created more than 700 jobs.
“This (La Kretz) is a unique place to build a company…a cleantech entrepreneur can take an idea, do research, go down the hall and prototype, then go across the hall to LADWP, and test and get an idea certified…then get a chance to get the idea to marketplace. This is the model for the future.”
