Incubator Facility. About Us

What is the GCIC Incubator?

In support of its mission to be an international leader in developing, incubating and commercializing cardiovascular technology, GCIC built an incubator facility to house start-up companies developing innovative solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and contributing to Ohio’s economic development.

Strategically located near the main campuses of Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals, the incubator offers 50,000 sq.ft. of prime, state-of-the-art space. Clients will enjoy customizable laboratory facilities for new product research and development activities, flexible office space and conference rooms. The facility provides clients with convenient access to world-leading clinicians and investigators along with all of GCIC’s business support services.

Founded in December 2007, the Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center was established by a State of Ohio Third Frontier Grant and is building the incubator facility in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic and Fairfax Renaissance Development Corporation. The project has been designed, built and equipped as one of the first cardiovascular healthcare focused incubators in the United States.
