Business Technology Center (BTC)

The BTC assists start-up and early-stage technology firms grow and prosper. The BTC operates from a 40,000-square-foot facility in Altadena, located in the San Gabriel Valley. Just minutes from Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the BTC helps cutting edge companies grow from “great ideas” into thriving businesses.

The BTC is dedicated to the development of high technology firms through business management assistance, technical assistance, and the coordination of available financial resources. Upon acceptance into the BTC, the staff works with the CEO to set realistic goals and objectives. Mentors will assist the principals in finding the resources to meet designated benchmarks. The realization of these goals and objectives is a vital part of the mission of the Business Technology Center.

The BTC Affiliate program provides early stage technology companies most of the benefits of tenant companies including access to mentoring, workshops and other services, including the use of conference rooms for meetings and presentations, the BTC mailing address and receptionist services.
