What is a business incubator? How can it help start a small business? A business incubator can help you develop, research and put together a solid plan for your new small business. It’s also a great way to connect with fellow-entrepreneurs to discuss all aspects of starting a small business.
The National Business Incubation Association (NBIA) is the world’s leading organization advancing business incubation and entrepreneurship. It provides thousands of professionals with the information, education, advocacy and networking resources to bring excellence to the process of assisting early-stage companies worldwide.

The National Business Incubation Association is composed primarily of incubator developers and managers, but technology commercialization specialists, educators and business assistance professionals are also well represented. Its mission is to provide training and a clearinghouse for information on incubator management and development issues and on tools for assisting start-up and fledgling firms. A business incubator is a wonderful way to connect with like-minded individuals to talk about business ideas, startup obstacles and to receive encouragement for your small business idea.
