The Los Angeles CleanTech Incubator (LACI) hosted the first site tour for 2018. The City of Los Angeles launched its cleantech business incubator to accelerate development of cleantech start-ups by offering flexible office space, CEO coaching and mentoring, and access to a growing network of experts and capital. LACI is the business equivalent of baseball’s farm system: it identifies local talent, nurtures it, and helps it get to market, resulting in more jobs and a bigger green economy in Los Angeles.
GBCSC Members learned about how LACI is supporting diversity and sustainability through start-ups. In addition to short product pitches by some of the companies located in LACI, GBCSC took a tour of the facility to see the office space and fabrication areas that companies use to make and test proto-type products.
