Incubators

Incubators are one of the many initiatives used for entrepreneurship development. Entrepreneurs need training and technical assistance and incubators aid entrepreneurs by giving them access to:

  • Equipment
  • Funding
  • Mentoring
  • Rental space
  • Flexible leases
  • Shared basic business services and equipment
  • Technology support services
  • Assistance in obtaining the financing necessary to grow
Some are non-profit, while others may charge fees and/or acquire some equity in ventures in exchange for their services. A business incubator’s goal is to produce successful firms that will leave the program financially viable and freestanding.

Federal Resources

From tax advice to government contracting, government-funded agencies like the Small Business Administration are increasing outreach to entrepreneurs. Recently, the SBA opened up one of its newer programs, the Business Gateway Program. The program involves the first government-sponsored online community built for the sole purpose of aiding entrepreneurs. It combines:

  • discussion threads
  • blogs
  • resource articles
The forum is designed to encourage interaction between business owners and government employees.
Traditionally, the SBA has offered a diverse wealth of advice for entrepreneurs, including:
  • Technical Assistance (Training & Counseling)
  • Financial Assistance
  • Contracting Assistance
  • Disaster Assistance Recovery
  • Special Interests Groups Assistance
  • Advocacy, Laws & Regulations
  • Civil Rights Compliance
