The Office of Business Development has launched the UC Merced Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expansion Program to increase the impact that UC Merced has on the regional economy. Using funding provided under initiative AB2664, we have expanded the program to provide support for new entrepreneurs, to create new businesses in the region and to attract later-stage companies. 

This has been implemented through development of the following programs and resources: 

UC Merced NSF I-Corps Site 

UC Merced Venture Lab Modesto 

UC Merced Venture Lab Atwater 

Central Valley Ventures 

Product Development Center

Proof of Concept Fund
