Life-sciences firm to become first tenant of the Prince William Science Accelerator
- April 9, 2014
ISOThrive LLC will become the first tenant of the Prince William Science Accelerator.
The startup, life-sciences company will occupy 603 square feet of space in the facility on May 15.
The company plans to use a new patented process in the field of microbiome health to bring dietary supplements to market.
Microbiome refers to the collective genomes of the microbes that live inside and on the human body.
The Prince William Science Accelerator, located on Discovery Boulevard in Manassas, is designed to support startup and fast-growing life sciences and biotechnology companies.
The accelerator contains about 9,000 square feet of wet laboratory space, which can be subdivided into nine laboratories.
The Prince William County Board of Supervisors committed $9,200 to ISOThrive from the county’s economic development opportunity fund.
The money will be used to offset a portion of the costs of equipment purchases by ISOThrive and to help it in locating in the accelerator.
ISOThrive plans to invest $143,000 in the project.
