CSUMB has been selected to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration to help fund a new virtual startup incubator designed to serve entrepreneurs in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties. The $426,035 EDA grant, along with local matching funds, provides over $852,070 to fund the creation of Startup Monterey Bay Launchpad .
