In 2014, Rutgers & Drexel Universities joined together to create a new coworking and business acceleration community on the Camden Waterfront. 

Our Mission

Camden CoLab is a plug-and-play coworking and accelerator community that offers entrepreneurs, small businesses, and students a programmed and professional atmosphere for pursuing innovation in the fields of technology, education, and medicine. We aim to become a regional magnet for developing and established innovators in these fields. All that is missing is you.


Rutgers Camden Technology Campus, Inc. (“RCTC”) is a not for profit 501(c) (3) mixed use business incubator.  Its mission is to attract, develop and retain new businesses for Camden.  It provides subsidized rent, professional mentoring, business services and management assistance to emerging early-stage companies and their employees along with access to venture capital and other supportive services.  In these ways it works to foster economic growth and business success in Camden and across the region.

The ACIN Camden Technology Center ("ACIN") strives to identify small businesses and technologies that are of interest to the military and the US Government, and to help them create markets for their technologies, products and services–thereby increasing jobs, growth and improving the long-term sustainability and survivability of the companies. Our program is focused on small businesses with technology that provides benefits to the Department of Defense – either by leveraging commercial-off-the-shelf  technology or developing new technology with the potential for commercial development.

Camden CoLab is the landing pad for new businesses, or businesses new to Camden, or independent workers looking to join a vibrant coworking community.
