Camden, NJ – Rutgers University and Drexel University have joined with Cooper’s Ferry Partnership to better provide superior small business incubation services in the City of Camden in the new Camden CoLab.

This combined business development and co-working space is now the premiere entrepreneurship and incubator services in the South Jersey/Philadelphia region, providing under one roof the Rutgers Camden Technology Campus (RCTC), the Drexel University ACIN Camden Center, and additional open format coworking space for entrepreneurs. Located in the Waterfront Technology Center at 200 Federal Street, Camden CoLab will formally open in September 2014.

Office space for small businesses, entrepreneurs, sole proprietorships and organizations seeking satellite offices is now available while the CoLab space undergoes significant upgrades. Pricing options start at $100/month, and prospective members can try out the space rent-free for one week.
