New Fertilab Thinkubator opens to help entrepreneurs

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - A new hub for entrepreneurs opened its doors to the Springfield community Friday evening.

Fertilab Thinkubator focuses on tech and biotech companies and has existed in Eugene for two years. It has helped grow 20 companies by providing resources and space to early stage entrepreneurs.

After a grand opening party, Fertilab Thinkubator looks forward to bringing new businesses to Springfield.

"We want the community to know that there's some really smart, exciting startups coming out of their community and we want to show them those startups - that they have those resources so they can stay here when they're building their company," said executive director Shula Jaron.

The nonprofit will be open on weekdays to the public.
