This is an exciting time to start a business in Murrieta. Until this point in time, an entrepreneur with an idea to start a business had to seek funding, resources, and education outside of this region, but the foundation of a startup business ecosystem is beginning to form here. With everything from mentor-ship and educational resources, to venture capital in the region, Murrieta is a place that you can take a business idea, commercialize it, and bring it to market.
The Murrieta Innovation Center is currently home to 7 medical technology based businesses that are incubating there to grow out of that space and into the business community. There are resource providers operating within the Murrieta Innovation Center that offer free counseling and mentoring to businesses.
These resource providers, along with the new University of California Riverside (UCR) Highlander Fund, a $10 million seed capital fund, offer startups the opportunity to grow their business right here in Murrieta.
Headed by Executive Director Jay Goth, InSoCal CONNECT is focused on connecting business, government and investors in the Inland Southern California Communities.
