- http://www.ocbin.org The Orange County Business Incubation Network* (OCBIN) was created to enhance economic growth in Orange County, California. The OCBIN mission is to facilitate incubation of promising Orange County start-up companies through: 1) targeted support of new incubators; 2) industry/university R&D collaborations and 3) low-cost access to the professional services, funding, and physical resources these companies need to grow and to succeed.
OCBIN is led by the UC Irvine's Office of Technology Alliances (OTA) and The Don Beall Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship drawing support from a wide array of community resources including the Orange County Business Council, SoCal Edison, VCs, the Irvine Chamber of Commerce and major OC corporations such as Allergan and Edwards Life Sciences. OCBIN currently supports the development of incubators in medical devices, IT, biotechnology and aerospace engineering and may expand into other fields if there is sufficient demand. Oversight and community support for OCBIN is provided by a Task Force whose 20 members represent the breadth of OC’s economic development assets.
