NBIA's Eighth Summit for Advanced Incubation Professionals

Feb. 9-11, 2014
Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa
Orlando, Fla.

Small, intimate. Very insightful presentations. Time and opportunities to really discuss issues, challenges, practices, programs. – 2013 summit participant

NBIA’s Eighth Summit for Advanced Incubation Professionals is a members-only event for experienced incubation leaders (three years or more in the industry). The summit provides a unique forum for veteran leaders to discuss, debate and exchange ideas about innovation, entrepreneurship and business incubation.

Attend the summit to:

  • Learn. The summit gives you the opportunity to learn from other high-level professionals with proven track records of success. You’ll come away from the event with a variety of tools to improve your program.
  • Connect. The summit lets you network and brainstorm with other industry veterans who share your experience and skill levels. You’ll make and solidify relationships that will benefit you throughout your career.
  • Inform. The strength of this event is its participants who share their extensive expertise in all things incubation and explore the most pressing trends and issues in the field. Past summit attendees say the new ideas they acquired at the event are invaluable. Your innovative ideas will add to that value!
  • Enjoy. Take a break from winter and enjoy the sunny Florida weather! The Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa offers unbeatable amenities to help you relax (when you are not at the summit, of course!). The hotel offers three heated swimming pools (with pool concierge) and a 10,000-square-foot spa and fitness center. The Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa also offers access to three Championship golf courses and the nine-hole family friendly Oak Trail walking course at Walt Disney World Resort.

Join NBIA in Orlando to participate in the industry’s highest level of professional development. You’ll come away with new ideas on how to be a better incubator manager and new tools to invigorate your program. The summit will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever challenges or opportunities come your way.
