Last October our CEO was fortunate enough to be invited on to a trade mission to Irvine, Orange County, California to explore what opportunities there could be for One Nucleus members and the wider network by collaborating with the Irvine cluster. Some key take home messages from the trip included:

  • There was great potential for exchanging expertise between the clusters in how the regional eco-system can be facilitated in creating and growing world class life science technology companies
  • Access to the biggest Angel and Venture capital network in the US
  • The depth of the Irvine cluster in this field means it represents an excellent pool of potential partners for UK-based companies seeking to expand
  • The location which was always master-planned to be an economic powerhouse and there may be actions we can adapt to support local growth

We are delighted that a high level delegation, including the Mayor of Irvine and senior executives from organisations such as Edwards Life Sciences, OCTANe, UCI, Thinkbox Technologies, Jones Lang LaSalle, The Greater Irvine Chamber and more is once again visiting Cambridge on February 14th to exchange thoughts and opportunities on the road to collaborating for mutual success.
