Sacramento’s Hacker Lab to open second site in Rocklin

Hacker Lab, the Sacramento nonprofit that helps nurture technology startups, plans to open a second site in early 2015, in cooperation with Sierra College in Rocklin.

Hacker Lab opened in midtown Sacramento in 2012, moving into 10,500 square feet of space at 1715 I St.

The Rocklin site, to be called Hacker Lab Sierra College, will be on Granite Drive, near the Sierra College campus.

Gina Lujan, co-founder of Hacker Lab, said the new site “is for students and the general public to spark innovation and economic development.”

Like the Sacramento Hacker Lab, the Rocklin site will host events and offer office space, manufacturing tools and equipment, such as 3D printers, all designed to encourage individuals and startups.
