Healthcare and science have been a major focus in Temple for more than 100 years. The Temple infrastructure for healthcare is immense with the presence of Baylor Scott & White Health and the Central Texas Veterans Healthcare System of Temple. And with the recent completion of the Temple Health & Bioscience District (THBD) Office and Laboratory Facility, Temple now has a hub for the evolution of a strong biotechnology sector to support the healthcare industry. The THBD Office and Laboratory Facility provides premier office and lab space for early-stage biotech companies that are taking health-related products from conception to manufacturing. Combining the outstanding office and lab infrastructure with the uniquely equipped Common Lab, it is easy to see that Temple is the place to be to grow your start-up biotech company.
The Temple Health & Bioscience District (THBD) recently approved $20,000 in seed funding for our tenant company. As a result of this seed funding, they have accelerated their product design and is one step closer to the pilot production of their innovative medical device. THBD personnel understand the value of seed funding for early-stage companies, and are looking to provide financial assistance to other Biotech Start-ups who become tenants in the THBD building. We want to help our resident companies; therefore, the seed funding that is available is one tool at our disposal to accomplish this goal.
