THE CAL STATE LA BIOSTART MISSION
The Cal State LA BioStart Bioscience Entrepreneurs Boot Camp is a five-week, intensive training program that prepares emerging bioscience entrepreneurs to launch their own bioscience ventures. The boot camp is a collaborative project of Cal State LA, the Biocom Institute and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator.
