More than 600 people from nearly 40 countries gathered in Seattle April 1-4 for NBIA's 21st International Conference on Business Incubation. As the home of some of the most recognized companies in the world, including Microsoft, Starbuck’s, Boeing and more, Seattle was an appropriate setting in which to discuss business growth and economic success.
The conference offered information on a broad range of incubation-related topics with more than 60 educational sessions, roundtable discussions and forum meetings. Attendees had plenty of opportunities to gather new tools and share information about how to help entrepreneurs succeed, as well as network with colleagues.
We enjoyed meeting everyone who attended the conference, and we thank the speakers, sponsors, board members and others who made this event a success!
