The Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Park is a 38 acre site that hosts STAR One, Texas State’s first building dedicated to the university’s research and commercialization efforts. STAR One serves as a technology accelerator for start-up and early-stage businesses, provides tenants access to secure wet labs, clean space, conference room, IT connections, and office space. The incubator program at STAR One is designed to foster the development of new commercial ventures related to Texas State technologies in applied research. This building will house "spin-offs" from research conducted and intellectual property generated by university faculty, and "spin-ins" from companies that want to strategically work with the University. The overall goal of the incubator program is to provide space and infrastructure to expedite research and commercial development of promising technologies in the context of viable, well managed, start-up companies.
