OCTANe was organized in 2002 with a strong idea: to unite regional biomedical and information technology companies, major university research institutes (University of California, Irvine and Chapman University), and a population of highly educated and entrepreneurial residents that together would build transformational businesses. OCTANe has created a successful ecosystem that accelerates the flow of ideas, talent, and capital by creating an infrastructure where entrepreneurs, academia, company executives, and business advisors build and grow sustainable organizations.
