San Jose leaders hosted a Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on May 3rd for the San Jose Innovation Center, located in a newly-renovated historic building in Downtown San Jose. With assistance from the Redevelopment Agency, the Center houses two incubator programs and a business support program: the Environmental Business Cluster, the U.S. Market Access Center and the Entrepreneur Center.

Since 1994, San Jose’s incubator and business service programs have helped local start-ups and small businesses commercialize the innovative technologies being developed in Silicon Valley and assist the growth of hundreds of small businesses.

Last fall, San Jose relocated three of its business support programs – the Environmental Business Cluster (EBC), the U.S. Market Access Center (USMAC) and the Entrepreneur Center (eCenter) – from separate buildings into the new San Jose Innovation Center. The EBC and USAC programs are operated and managed by the San Jose State Research Foundation, and the eCenter is managed by the Humboldt State University Sponsored Programs Foundation. San Jose State Research Foundation shares a 15-year partnership with the City of San Jose and the San Jose Redevelopment Agency.
