Quick update from the 25th National Business Incubator Association Conference in San Jose: Over 550 incubator practitioners representing 37 countries in attendance this year. Sessions highlighting the value in networking and collaboration as essential for the success of an incubator and nurturing entrepreneurial growth regardless of industry type.
CViHub programs and services will incorporate networking and partnering as strong focus to support growing Coachella Valley start ups. This year’s conference focus – riding the wave of innovation – fits the CViHub goal of fostering clean and green tech industry development.
True to growing trends in innovation – all workshop materials will be available on the NBIA website and through the NBIA Library. Very little “paper” material is available. Many regions are using incubators as a tool to help start up businesses, spur job growth and energize local economies. I’m excited more than ever about our CViHub
June 2011 launch date. Stay tuned.
