Business incubators are facilities designed to help new businesses get started by providing affordable rental space, onsite support services, and technical assistance (including financial and legal advice) in a unique environment that fosters growth.
An incubator manager is available at most sites to help tenants with their business planning. Tenants also have access to resources that provide management, marketing, accounting, financial, and legal assistance.
