The newly completed CoLaborator space at the Bayer Biologics Global Research & Development site in West Sacramento will house various agritech startups who will use that space to develop innovative ag solutions!


An Open House held on Sept. 25 gave Bayer West Sacramento employees a chance to tour the CoLaborator space. In addition, Geoff Kneen, R&D Licensing and New Ventures Manager, was on hand to answer questions.


The CoLaborator is 3,000 feet of lab and office “incubator” space designed to support an external ag tech start-up company. It is a combination of office and fully modern biochemistry and cell biology labs.

There are currently two other CoLaborator spaces. One in Mission Bay, California and the other in Berlin, Germany. The West Sacramento CoLaborator space is completely dedicated to agriculture and supporting innovation, the first open space to invite startups to develop their solutions.


Construction to create the space was completed recently. The first tenant will be from the recently announced joint venture with Ginkgo Bioworks.
