What we do

CoMotion Labs provide a multi-industry incubation environment for early-stage startups with a focus on UW spinoffs. From critical infrastructure (desks, dry benches, wet lab space, and prototyping capabilities) to just-in-time learning, mentoring, and networking, CoMotion Labs nurture company growth and enable success. Our labs are currently home to over 100 startups and operate in two locations on the UW Seattle campus.

Unique advantage

We're about your success. Business is all about relationships. At CoMotion Labs you'll find resources for your startup when your idea is in the pre-seed stage, and along the journey as you scale up. Here, you'll find plenty of office space, meeting rooms, as well as chemistry, biology, engineering, augmented and virtual reality labs.

We provide connections and training. But it's our services we provide that set us apart.
