One of the more popular techniques to help entrepreneurs and start-up business firms survive their early years and grow and prosper in the community is the small business incubator. The small business incubator is a physical facility, which provides various sizes of offices or office suite, warehousing and manufacturing space, common loading docks, shared board/meeting space, kitchen facilities and a common reception area. The incubator provides a receptionist to greet visitors and to assist tenants in using a shared copier, fax, and audio-visual equipment and often times computers. The incubator manager assists tenants in preparing business plans, securing financing, business counseling and management advising. Tenants are expected to graduate from the incubator within a reasonable time frame to allow others to use the service. The incubator recoups costs by charging reasonable lease rates and fees and charges for the use of specialized services and equipment. Use our convenient locator map to find an incubator near you. Why should a new business want to locate in a business incubator? Most new businesses have a strength in a specific area and a great deal of passion. What they generally lack is experience in the basics of running a business and the infrastructure -the fax machines and telephone systems – to make things work. Virginia’s business incubators give these bold new companies structure, credibility, access to knowledge, infrastructure, and contacts that are necessary for the businesses to take root. MAP
