Johnson & Johnson - Janssen Labs Build-Out: Innovative Life Science Incubator

Johnson & Johnson Innovation LLC recently opened its JLABS@South San Francisco facility to its first resident startups. The 30,000-square-foot incubator can accommodate up to 50 startups from across the healthcare spectrum including biotech, pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer and digital health.


  • National Team: R&S Facilitated collaboration with stakeholders from every corner of the US 
  • 5.5 month schedule to meet JLABS 2015 opening


JLABS was launched with the goal of not only building capabilities within regional life science hot spots, but also supporting entrepreneurs by helping them overcome challenging discovery and development barriers.

The state-of-the-art facilities provide companies access to core research labs filled with the latest equipment; flexible, turnkey modular wet lab units; flexible space includes conference spaces equipped with the latest in audio visual and connectivity; operations teams that manage all day to day activities; and business services team that help accelerate the development of the company.

Schedule was a critical factor of this successful project, which needed to be complete in time for the JP Morgan Health Care Conference hosted in nearby downtown San Francisco. With team members scattered from the Bay Area to New Jersey, Rudolph and Sletten implement processes and procedures that kept the project moving forward and the team cohesive, always keeping an eye on the end goal—to drive innovation.
