Startempire Wire Weekly Round up

1. Inland Empire: Big Box Industrial Market

This week we covered how the Inland Empire has become one of them most attractive big box industrial markets of America, per a report by CBRE.

The real estate investment company revealed that 100K people are employed in the Inland Empireโ€™s warehouse industry making it the most important industry of the region.

2. BioTech Startups of the Inland Empire

This was followed up with a report about Biotech startups operating in the Inland Empire. We wrote about Murrieta Genomics, Basilard BioTech, GattaCo Inc., NeyroblastGX, and Swellter Inc. The aim of this report is to let you know that there’s a lot happening in the Riverside and San Bernardino that main press does not cover.

3. Riverside Ranks 25th Most Future Focused U.S. City

Riverside ranked 25th on the list of 2021 top 25 most future focused cities in America, according to a report by Finance Buzz. We tried to highlight how an emerging identity of Inland Empire is being carved out by digitally savvy influencers of the region. However, there are hard core realities of the region, such as logistics and distribution being the best established industries. Unless the leaders who want to transform the region at par with say Austin and Silicon Valley have to keep logistics and e-Commerce front and center and innovate from there.

4. SCEIN Network and Energy Startups

Then we wrote how a network of business and industry leaders are laying the foundation for energy startups to innovate in the renewables and alternate energy sector. You got it right, we we wrote about the Southern California Energy Innovation Network, or SCEIN.

We reported how the network has raised more than $225 Million for its portfolio startups and how it continues to shape the energy innovation landscape of California.

5. UCR to Use $2.5M to Dig into Inland Empire Logistics/Distribution Triggered Pollution

There was a funding news about UCR getting $2.5M from California Attorney Generalโ€™s Automobile Emissions Research and Technology Fund to study the environmental impact of moving goods in the Inland Empire. There has long been a debate and occasional writeups of Inland Empire being a warehouse central. It’s a first that UCR, a key research, education, and innovation hub in the Inland Empire is taking up the issue and we expect to see some good insights about curtailing environmental impact of moving goods in IE.

6. Startup Accelerator: ExCITE Riverside

Lastly, we covered Riverside ExCITE, a startup accelerator by UC Riverside, in partnership with the County of Riverside and the city of Riverside that helps select startups with promising MVPs to scale up their companies and operations.

Our goal at Startempire Wire is to act as a megaphone to connect the dots between the best startups, events, and people in the Inland Empire. Donโ€™t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and like/follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
