The University of Colorado (CU) is hosting a new incubator that will help PhD students and postdocs develop their life science innovations into products and start-ups.

Nucleate is a free, collaborative, student-run organization with incubators in locations across the U.S. Nucleate Boulder will offer mentorship, networking, team-building resources and more to students from universities across the state through the Activator incubator.

“Our core mission is to pioneer a hub for students, specifically PhD and postdocs interested in building life-science ventures,” says Stefanos Koutsoukos, a managing director at Nucleate Boulder. “It’s very much an education and training that you need to, at least in the current infrastructure, pursue yourself. With that being said, even when you do seek it out, the resources that are student-centric are very limited. We are excited to change this paradigm.”

The Activator program is open to eligible students from CU Boulder, CU Anschultz Medical Campus, CU Denver, Colorado School of Mines and Colorado State University. Nucleate Boulder will have an official launch party in early September.
