How We Work

We are agile, focused, and forward-thinking.

We focus solely on academic and research institutions. This expertise allows us to optimize financial returns and minimize costs for our partners.

Our Track Record

Wexford has developed or is developing seventeen innovation ecosystems in partnership with our institutional partners across eleven states, with projects in key urban centers including Baltimore, Chicago, Durham, Miami, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Providence, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, and St. Louis.

A Robust Innovation Network of Connected Institutional Partners

The University Innovation NetworkTM

With a critical mass of top research universities, academic medical centers, health systems, and research institutions within the Wexford portfolio, we created The University Innovation Network TM, which fosters connections between companies and institutions across our platform. In these interactions, we work to promote research, technology, and student and faculty talent, with the goal of helping to make new productive connections.

What Our Partners Have to Say

Our dealings with Wexford have been uniformly characterized by transparency, fair dealing and good will, which produced attractive, highly functional buildings significantly contributing to the creation of a globally-recognized innovation district. Wake Forest Baptist Health and Wake Forest University have been markedly advanced in their missions through the collaboration with Wexford.
