Dive Right In!
Incubation industry professionals from around the world congregated in Baltimore, Maryland, May 15-18, for NBIA’s 19th International Conference on Business Incubation. This year’s event marked the association’s 20th anniversary, and everyone had a chance to reflect on how far the incubation industry and NBIA have come in the last two decades.
In addition to celebrating past accomplishments, conference-goers learned new information and techniques in more than 60 educational sessions and roundtable discussions. Attendees also took advantage of numerous networking opportunities, from the opening reception to the incubator tour to refreshment breaks.
We're still compiling final attendees lists and overall conference statistics, but please check back soon for more details about this year's conference.
