The Gulf Coast Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is now CO:LAB! 

On January 11th, the CIE changed its name to CO:LAB, launching a new website and a fresh new look! The rebranding reflects both the evolution of Pensacola’s incubator as well as its vision for the future. 

CO:LAB is a program of FloridaWest EDA in partnership with Pensacola State College. The program targets early-stage, high­-growth companies to increase their chances of success by providing shared office space, support services and business coaching. Its mission is to act as a catalyst to support innovative entrepreneurs who create jobs and can sustain long-­term economic growth for Greater Pensacola and Escambia County. Since its inception 8 years ago, the program has helped grow 27 local companies employing more than 100 Pensacola area residents.
