Innovation in Irvine

(PR Newswire, April 1, 2015) –

Orange County loves swells- swells in both the Spring California surf report and a swell in business. Following the overwhelming and unprecedented success of EvoNexus in San Diego County, EvoNexus, ROC and the Irvine Company have been diligently working over the past year to fine tune, expand, and create a property in Irvine like no other. Welcome to ROC@TheVineOC!

“Understanding that design is an integral part of what we consider workspace evolution and must reflect the communal (collaborative) entrepreneurial movement.”-Ron McElroy, Founder and CEO of ROC.

The newest ROC property in Irvine, at TheVine, has been over a year in the making and has finally come to fruition! Boasting 22,000 square feet with 70 offices, ROC@TheVine opened last week at 40% leased. With private offices, coworking space, indoor/outdoor event space, beer on tap, artwork by Kaleo, an in-house Cafe and Pedego bikes available for members…this project defines the new work movement in Orange County.

This promising collaborative cutting-edge creation with The Irvine Company, EvoNexus and ROC, is more than technology start-up inspired office space. McElroy elaborates, “Besides the creative environment, a crucial element to providing an engaging, interactive and socially progressive feeling.” ROC@TheVine will provide event driven education, mentorship, networking and privately procured opportunities unfound in the traditional corporate Real Estate market. Community partners include Microsoft, TCVN, 500 Startups, Free Lunch Friday, Tech Coast Angels, OC iOS Developers, Tech in Motion and WITI.

The ideal environment creates the right conditions (as with surfing and ideal offshore winds) and Southern California has more than perfect surf, the emergence of Silicon Beach is evidence of this growth. As Rory Moore of EvoNexus states, “The EvoNexus mission is to build a sustainable community supported, technology business incubator to launch companies, raise capital and create outcomes.” this is the central focus of TheVine partnership and development.

EvoNexus and ROC are investing directly in the barely tapped well of potential in the technology start-up and corporate innovation culture of the present (and future) in Orange County and have successfully created the ideal environment for entrepreneurial acceleration.

“Several believers are dabbling with the creative space concept or contemplating design changes in their product offerings, but no one is as whole heartedly committed to the emerging start-up culture of evolving innovation like this Orange Countyteam.”-Ron McElroy, Founder and CEO of ROC.
