New Business Incubation

New Business Incubation

Business incubators are organizations geared toward speeding up the growth and success of startup and early stage companies. Incubators vary in their strategies. Some are located in an actual physical space meant to foster networking among entrepreneurs and their coaches. Others operate on a virtual basis. Bethel combines the best aspects of both models to service early stage businesses on the West Side.

Through this New Business Incubation program, Bethel provides direct support to up to five new businesses each six month period. These businesses receive office/operating space at well below market-value rates, support from Bethel’s business counselors within our Small Business Development Center, and access to specialized seminars and activities. The goal of the program is to provide the greatest likelihood of success for the launch and sustainability of these businesses.
