About CTTi

The Center for Training, Technology & Incubation (CTTi) provides emerging to medium-size companies the opportunity to lease office and wetlab space in an environment that helps accelerates successful growth. CTTi accomplishes this by offering these companies resources available to mature companies and allowing them to selectively access the resources as the need arises. CTTi tenants work in an environment that fosters communication among entrepreneurs; facilitates collaborations with Cal Poly Pomona researchers and students; while leasing office and wetlab space designed to expand with company growth.

Cal Poly Pomona's Innovation Village

CTTi understands the challenge facing emerging to medium-size companies when leasing space in the first years. The combination of a limited operating history, need for small but often specialized space, and unpredictability of growth patterns, makes for a real challenge. CTTi understands this dynamic and offers flexible terms and scalable space options. There is also the long term attraction of being located in Innovation Village, a 65-acre business/research park located on the Cal Poly Pomona campus.

Support in many different forms

Many CTTi companies are early stage with two to 20 employees, a management team comprised of founders, and first products entering the market. Until now, the technical development has been all consuming but financing and marketing functions now demand equal attention. Tenants also quickly learn to leverage and extend the value of close proximity to Cal Poly Pomona from the obvious student talent and faculty expertise to less obvious resources such as marketing and training development.

Those seeking to lease space will find that CTTi has demonstrated a willingness to work with emerging to medium-size companies with a promising product or service when income levels, business plans, or product prototypes may not be fully developed.
