QB3, Wareham team up to woo 'mavericks' to new West Berkeley incubator

'It will be a collaboration of micro-companies working together,' says Wareham's Chris Barlow.
An incubator aimed at capturing a new wave of East Bay “mavericks” is coming to life with the help of some old hands.
The QB3 East Bay Innovation Center — the product of an alliance linking the University of California’s QB3 institute and veteran developer Wareham Development — already has two signed tenants and three leases in negotiation for the 9,300-square-foot wet lab space at Seventh and Potter streets in West Berkeley, said Wareham President Rich Robbins.
The first phase of the center is set to open May 15 while construction continues on a second phase that will be unveiled by June 15, Robbins said.
In all, the center could house 10-15 life sciences, physical sciences and cleantech companies.
