Strategy BE2.3: Establish business incubators focused on green technologies, creative culture, and other targeted industries.

Strategy Description

Business incubators, like the Small Business Center at A-B Tech and Blue Ridge Food Ventures, are valuable resources for emerging and existing entrepreneurs and small business owners. The counseling, training, grant funding, networking and resources they offer are critical to ensuring the success of new start-ups. Local economic developers should work with existing business incubator operators to facilitate programs that support target industry development.
