Incubators and Co-Work Spaces

The National Business Incubation Association defines the five key components of business incubation as the following:

  1. Working with new companies
  2. Screening potential clients based on set selection criteria
  3. Providing comprehensive business assistance services
  4. Having on-site management that coordinates the delivery of services
  5. Graduating companies from the program

Greater Gainesville has really embraced the incubator/startup relationship, and it’s ever-reaching impact. Incubator/startup relationships have been known to affect many factors within a community:

  • Creating local jobs
  • Fostering entrepreneurial climate
  • Commercializing technology
  • Diversifying local economies
  • Building/accelerating local industry growth
  • Retaining firms in community
  • Encouraging minority or women entrepreneurship
