NBIA’s 18th Fall Training Institute

Oct. 13-15, 2008
New Orleans, La.

Learn new techniques for developing or revitalizing your incubation program at NBIA’s 18th Fall Training Institute. This event, designed for incubation and other economic development professionals, will take place Oct. 13-15 at the Chateau Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans. Three intensive workshops will be presented each day, with full-day workshops offered on Monday and Tuesday, and half-day workshops offered on Wednesday. Click here to read full descriptions of the workshops.

Two of the workshops offered during this event – “Serving Client Companies” and “The Fundamentals of Incubator Management” – fulfill requirements of NBIA’s Incubator Management Certificate Program. “Serving Client Companies” will cover the programs and services an incubator should offer, as well as best practices for coaching clients. “The Fundamentals of Incubator Management” is intended for managers of established incubators who are looking for strategies and techniques to meet clients’ expectations and run successful programs. Click here to learn more about the certificate program and its requirements.

Experienced trainers with expertise in incubation-related topics will lead the workshops. Besides gaining access to their expertise, you’ll have time to interact with incubation professionals from around the world who attend NBIA events. By participating, you’ll be able to share ideas and experiences with an international audience.

After the workshops end for the day, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with colleagues. At the Monday evening sponsor reception, you can enjoy hors d’oeuvres, chat with other attendees, and view some of the products and services offered by our sponsors. After the workshops end on Wednesday, you can board a bus bound for Baton Rouge to visit the Louisiana Emerging Technology Center and the Louisiana Business & Technology Center.
