Biotech Company Startup Capital Support

The Hershey Center for Advanced Research is home to biotech companies and researchers involved in advancing science and technology in new and exciting ways. Many of our tenants are at the forefront of innovation within the biotech community, in both the public and private sectors. New medical devices, treatments, drugs, nanotechnology and much more are the result of research conducted by the biotech companies located at HCAR.

Cost-effective laboratory facilities and common areas make HCAR the perfect environment for any biotech company. We frequently host events and seminars that bring together some of the most distinguished researchers across a variety of fields of study, fostering the type of networking our tenants need to succeed.

The professional staff at HCAR knows that for any new biotech company, startup capital and funding can be hard to find. Our business services exist to help new companies with great ideas and potential find the startup funding they need to get off the ground. HCAR is more than just a landlord; we're dedicated to seeing our tenants succeed in terms of their research as well as their business.

A lot of budding biotech research companies, through no fault of their own, lack the business connections and relationships in the Central PA area that would help them find startup capital to begin to grow their business. HCAR is the bridge between biotech companies and startup funding; our business services work to put our tenants in touch with the people and organizations most likely to provide startup capital.

Through our partner organizations and our close working relationship with the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and College of Medicine we are equipped to help promising early stage companies develop a plan for success. Several of our tenant companies have been awarded grants and investment from the Life Sciences Greenhouse of Central Pennsylvania, one of the leading biotech commercialization organizations in the Pennsylvania.

HCAR was founded to promote economic development and growth in the central Pennsylvania region by attracting businesses working in the life sciences, clean technology, nanotechnology, and information technology and food science sectors. Our lab and office rental opportunities are increasingly attractive due to the Class A amenities of our modern campus, in addition to our full complement of business services. From helping our tenants procure needed startup capital funding to developing a plan for the most efficient use of your resources, we view our success as synonymous with your own.
