Incubating Success

Recently, the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) funded a research study to examine the relationship between incubator best practices and client outcomes. Incubating Success: Incubation Best Practices That Lead to Successful Ventures - conducted by the University of Michigan's Institute for Research on Labor, Employment and the Economy; the State University of New York at Albany, the National Business Incubation Association, and Cybergroup Inc. - examined specific relationships between how an incubation program operates and how its client companies perform.

Findings from the study and best practices for helping startups succeed are the focus of an upcoming EDA webinar, How Incubators Lead to Successful New Ventures, on Thursday, November 17.

Speakers include the studies three authors--Lawrence Molnar, University of Michigan; David Lewis, The University at Albany, State University of New York; and, Elise Harper-Anderson, Virginia Commonwealth University—as well as Tracey Kitts, National Business Incubation Association.
