Upon completion of the Autodesk CADCAM and SyncFab factory sourcing marketplace presentations the group then enjoyed a guided tour of the exceptional new LACI facility. In partnership with Los Angeles’ leading educational and research organizations – UCLA, USC, Caltech and Jet Propulsion Laboratory – LACI helps accelerate the commercialization of their clean technologies in addition to accelerating new products developed by independent entrepreneurs. LACI is a result of the Clean Tech Los Angeles (CTLA) alliance among the Mayor’s office, the City’s universities, the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, the Los Angeles Business Council, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, LADWP and the CRA/LA.

LACI is located in the city’s Cleantech Corridor in downtown Los Angeles. Located in a four mile long strip between the Los Angeles River and Alameda in the eastern part of downtown, the Clean Tech Corridor is the cornerstone of the city’s green economy strategy. The Corridor will be home to the cleantech ecosystem that Los Angeles is building to support the green economy.

At the center of the Cleantech Corridor is the Arts and Innovation District, a vibrant neighborhood undergoing a dramatic change from abandoned warehouses to a mix of creative entrepreneurs and out-of-the-ordinary living spaces. LACI is located in the center of the Arts and Innovation District, within easy walking distance of SCI-Arc, restaurants, bars, galleries, Little Tokyo, and luxury lofts.
