Colabra for Startups launches today to support entrepreneurs pushing the limits of science

We’re excited to announce the launch of Colabra for Startups — a program designed to support world-changing entrepreneurs.

As founders ourselves, we know first-hand the budget limitations of a startup, yet we’ve also witnessed how the right software can radically accelerate one’s progress in the early days of a project.

Here at Colabra, we believe every scientific organization should have a quality lab information management system to document and collaborate on their research.

That’s why we offer a generous Free plan with access to all of Colabra’s core features for teams under 10 editors.

And today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Colabra for Startups — a program designed to support world-changing startups with a 50% discount on the first year of our Pro plan.

In addition to all the Free features, the Pro plan includes unlimited electronic lab notebook editors, 30-day version history, unlimited file upload size, witness & review (e-signatures), and full FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.

Startups also get white-glove support, dedicated communication channels, and personal onboarding.


To begin with, Colabra for Startups will be available to companies with less than $2M in funding and part of select partner incubators, accelerators and fellowships: Y Combinator, IndieBio, Petri, On Deck Deep Tech, Thought For Food, Cyclotron Road, The Engine, HATCHspaces and Magnify Incubator.

If you’re not in one of the programs above, please get in touch at [email protected] so that we can review your individual case or work on an official partnership with your investors.

Partnerships with Thought For Food

As part of our new program, we're kicking off a special partnership with Thought For Food, the world's largest community for food and agricultural technology entrepreneurs.

We’re running a 6-week Modern Lab management course focused entirely on food & ag and featuring interviews with food science entrepreneurs.

We're excited to build on this partnership to help entrepreneurs across the world feed 10 billion people by 2050. If you’re working in food & ag science, consider joining the TFF Community and applying to participate in the Summit and Challenge when they are announced later this year.
