EvoNexus Tech Incubator Welcomes Newest Class of Startups Fall 2016


SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – November 9, 2016 — EvoNexus, pro-bono, non-profit technology incubator and hub for Southern California’s entrepreneurial and startup community, announces its newest class of technology startups. EvoNexus has admitted 15 new startups to their Southern California locations in La Jolla, Downtown San Diego and Irvine. The newly admitted startups will be joining a portfolio of 162 companies that have incubated at EvoNexus. The incubator was founded in late 2009 and the first class of companies was fully operational in 2010. In just over 6 years, startups that have been incubated at EvoNexus have raised over $1.077 billion in funding and outcomes and 17 startups have been acquired. Notable companies that have incubated at EvoNexus include: Edico Genome and ecoATM.

Dmitry Shapiro, former Myspace Music CTO, Xoogler, has left Google to start GoMeta, one of EvoNexus’ newly admitted startups. “Leaving Google and starting a company in San Diego was a big decision.  Knowing that EvoNexus would be there to help, made it a lot easier.  San Diego has the talent, environment, and entrepreneur support infrastructure to be the next big tech hub, and GoMeta is proud to work, in conjunction with EvoNexus, to make that even bigger.”

Steve Morley, former Vice President of Technology and employee #10 of Qualcomm Incorporated, is the president of Assured Wireless Corporation, one of the newest additions to the EvoNexus La Jolla. “Thirty-one years ago a small group of highly talented technology executives and engineers started Qualcomm about a mile from the current EvoNexus La Jolla location. Starting a new high tech company in the same neighborhood is like coming home with a bit of déjà vu. We at Assured Wireless are looking forward to following in the legacy that Qualcomm created in San Diego and we are very excited EvoNexus will make this even more probable.”
