Beacon’s research laboratories will be unrivaled. The labs will provide life science companies with state-of-the-art opportunities. Each lab will be equipped with the finest equipment needed by our community of companies and scientists. Each shared lab will be staffed by technicians to assist the incubator firms and tenants.
The most exciting feature of all is the access to our very own contract research organization (CRO) and manufacturing facilities. This allows our incubator companies to produce their products within the same complex and the ability to grow within our research center all the way through the commercialization stage.

MANAGEMENT TEAM BIOS
Our capabilities are based on the successful careers of a team that has focused on being the best in their fields. Each senior member has years of industry experience not only in biotech and the sciences, but also in law, banking, and finance. Each team member also has notable experience as an investor. As we strengthen our management and administrative team, advisory group, and lab technicians we will look for the same drive, determination, and entrepreneurial spirit that we see in the scientists whose ideas we incubate.
<Link to Bios>
Allowing companies to focus on the science is the overriding sentiment and central ambition behind the creation of Beacon. We strongly believe that facilitating this process is one of the best ways to de-risk biopharma R&D. We help incubator firms achieve this by providing a classification appropriate environment that is clean, safe, interactive, functional, and beautiful. Independent or shared labs, office space, and common areas are all designed with the scientific community in mind. The physical space encourages interaction, collaboration, and creates a unique environment that is both fun and productive.
At Beacon, the labs will be broken into the following categories:
Independent & Share Lab Space
Pharmaceutical Reformulation Lab & Manufacturing
Biologics Lab & Manufacturing
Therapeutics Lab & Manufacturing
Nasal Inhalation Lab & Manufacturing
Common areas, meeting rooms, large group presentation facilities, conference facilities, and individual office space will be built using the highest standards. A fully equipped pantry, recreation rooms, meditation and yoga rooms, etc., are all designed to provide a positive, safe, and fun work environment.
At Beacon Pharma we were investors first.
Capital or lack thereof is one of the primary reasons why many a compelling IP gets shelved. At Beacon, we are laser-focused on funding with our resources or with our investment partners. Every legitimate capital need of the incubated company will be reviewed and funding will be led by our group. We will also be there to advise and assist when your company is ready to take outside capital or access the public markets. We are patient investors and understand that it often takes a while for a good idea to become a great one and we have no intention of letting a good idea fail because there was not enough capital.
