Business Incubator

What is a Business Incubator?

Business incubators nurture the development of entrepreneurial companies, helping them survive and grow during the early years, when they are most vulnerable. These programs provide their client companies with business support services and resources tailored to young firms.

The most common goals of incubation programs are creating jobs in a community, enhancing a community’s entrepreneurial climate, retaining businesses in a community, building or accelerating growth in a local industry, and diversifying local economies.

What are the benefits of the Business Incubator?

The facility includes eight office spaces. We provide training & guidance throughout the program. Up to three years is allowed in which a business owner benefits from one on one business coaching sessions & classroom training to ensure growth & understanding as the business progresses.

Some issues covered include: business planning, product/service analysis, budgeting and finances, taxes, payroll, staffing, customer service, healthcare, marketing and design as well as other issues as they arise. 

"West Central's incubator space gave me the perfect launching pad for my business. The office is secure, in a great location, has fixed utilities and even a conference room to use."
