Given the tough U.S. economic times, many developing and/or revitalizing communities are greatly suffering. Today, an estimated 3 to 5 million people are without employment (Center for Economic and Policy Research, 2008). Those individuals with employment are finding the increasing need to supplement their income with an additional work and/or seek more consistent, benefits-driven employment.

Our programs are designed to accelerate the successful development of business-minded individuals and entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services. These programs are geared to meet a variety of community and individual economic and socioeconomic needs and are offered through both the actual business incubator plan and through a strong network of contacts and resources.
