KiiLN grew out of the need for dedicated space and facilities to encourage life science entrepreneurs in the New York area. Our founding team came together as participants in the first Q.E.D. Project, an educational initiative of the Center for Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (C-TIE) at Mount Sinai. The KiiLN team brings together scientific training as well as international experience to the project. We envision growing biotech in the NYC area by building a culture that sustains innovation in life sciences.
