Start-up life-science businesses are thriving at the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s (EDA) Commercialization Center for Innovative Technologies (CCIT), which runs along the Route 1 research and development corridor.
CCIT is part of the Technology Centre of New Jersey, which sits on more than 50 acres in North Brunswick. CCIT, the state’s leading life-sciences incubator, has welcomed 14 new tenants since January 2010, including Linnovision Inc., which moved to the facility last month. CCIT has helped support the creation of an estimated 1,000 new jobs in the state.
“This is a place where we mentor so that they can grow and expand,” said Michele A. Brown, chief executive officer of the state EDA. “Our vision is for them to never totally leave these grounds. As they graduate, our hope is for them to become a tenant in one of our buildings on the site.”
