Velox Biosystems will give an investment pitch along with other UCI-based startups as part of the festivities held for the Grand Opening of the Cove. The Cove is a 31,00 sq ft. state of the art facility located in University Research Park at UC Irvine. The Cove is aptly named with the goal of providing a “safe harbor” for startups. Under one roof, the Cove combines discovery disclosure, prototyping, funding, incubation, and acceleration for startups. Richard Sudek, the Executive Director of UCI Applied Innovation and the Cove the describes their effort as follows: “We are creating a microcosm of Orange County’s entrepreneurial ecosystem under one roof with incubators and accelerators, angel investors, and venture capitalists, mentors and legal experts–all the resources and expertise new businesses need to succeed.”
The grand opening will be held October 8th from 10am to 8pm at the Cove (5141 California Ave, Irvine, CA 92697). Velox will pitch at 7PM in the Venture Cove Pitch Room.
