What We Do

CoMotion Labs, part of CoMotion, provides a multi-industry labs system hosting startups inside and outside the UW community in IT, Engineering, Life Sciences, Medical Devices, Clean Tech and AR/VR. We average between 60 to 90 startups in our incubators at any given time. Our startups range from pre-seed to Series A, employing 2 to 15 people each, and are variously headed by students, faculty, and community leaders, with both new and seasoned entrepreneurs represented. CoMotion Labs removes barriers and increases connections to ensure our startups' optimal success in taking their innovations to impact.

Why We Are Unique

Business is all about relationships. At CoMotion Labs, we'll partner with you when your idea is in the pre-seed stage, and stay with you all the way up to your scale up. Here, you'll find plenty of office space, meeting rooms, as well as chemistry, biology, engineering, augmented and virtual reality labs. But it's the service we provide that set us apart. As part of the University of Washington, you'll have access to thousands of first-rate minds doing cutting-edge research in hundreds of fields.

We'll plug you into Seattle's thriving innovation community with our CEO roundtables, CoMotion Advisory Network and free workshops on everything from customer development to financing. Since we operate on a sustainability model, instead of a profit model, our rates are affordable, so you can hire more staff. (And you keep all your intellectual property and equity!)
