The Start-up in Residence program is a component of our open innovation strategy to bring researchers closer to future technical start-ups.

This program is directly connected to Le Garage and aims to foster entrepreneurs by providing support and access to Bell Labs resources.

The Program 

The Start-up in residence program provides access to "Le Garage" and its resources to selected start-up companies.  Our reseachers offer mentorship and technical expertise.  We offer future entrepreneurs operational support, a vast network of contacts, access to customers and strategic relationships with established companies. 

The Start-ups

The people of the start-up organization bring their entrepreneurial spirit and small team flexibility.  They bring their dedication, ideas and visions of future products.  We offer practical business training, technical skills and mentorship so they can develop as entrepreneurs.

The Collaboration

As a collaborative project, Bell Labs helps the start-up group develop an innovation strategy.  Small teams will work with experienced researchers to hone rapid prototypes into stable, high quality products.  Our program provides start-up groups the opportunity to truly test their timing and persistence.  Our mission is to ensure they develop the skills and attitude needed to develop a future technology company.
