Home for Startups, Entrepreneurs & Innovators
CoMotion Labs, part of CoMotion, provides a multi-industry labs system hosting startups from inside and outside the UW community across three locations near or on UW campus, or via our virtual lab in Spokane.
We average 90+ startups in our ecosystem 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 for startups, and provides valuable industry connections in order to help our members take their innovations to impact.
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. 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 through our CoMotion Advisory Network and free workshops on everything from customer development to financing.
We're affordable. Since we operate on a sustainability model, instead of a profit model, our rates are affordable, so you can hire more staff. Plus, you keep all your intellectual property and equity!
