Why Southline?

Boston has top-tier research universities which has the ability to provide a major pipeline of life sciences startups full of potential. The Portal model will remain the same – we still aim to provide membership and portfolio companies the tools, ecosystem, and lab space they need to succeed. Our Southline location sits steps from the Red Line and I-93, and just 3 miles south of downtown Boston. Hundreds of nearby restaurants, coffee houses, and shops occupy the area, making it neighborhood and commuter friendly.

We are thrilled to welcome Beacon Capital as our partners on this venture. Beacon is one of the leading commercial real estate investment firms in the world, and we are excited to be their partner. Their Boston expertise, continued success in life sciences, and local network, will be important for our team to succeed.
