Research Facilities & Resources Accelerate Your R&D Process

BRDG Park is a place where great ideas can be born, nurtured and grown to maturity – with all the resources needed at every step of the journey.

Our roster of agtech companies and agricultural startups benefit from unique access to research-grade greenhouses, cutting-edge technologies, wet lab space, and other business amenities.
