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 sustainabiltiy 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!)
