    Since 1995, nearly 150 companies have been started in the Virginia BioTechnology Center, the Park's life sciences incubator. Approximately one-quarter of those companies have been started with discoveries and technologies coming out of research at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), with the remaining companies being started by entrepreneurs and scientists from as far north as New York and as far south as Florida. The Center is equipped with 10 wet laboratory/office suites and 22 private offices for companies not needing a wet laboratory. All have access to common equipment, meeting rooms and other shared facilities such as copiers, fax machines, mailboxes and common reception. The labs have built-in benches, casework and hoods and office furnishings. All utilities including high-speed internet service are included in the rent for the labs and office.
