Partner Testimonials

"The BCC Research Reports service has been very helpful to our efforts at UCF. BCC Research's five-year forecasting and sheer breadth/scope of the marketplace has been an unbelievable value-add that we can now bring to our client entrepreneurs in the UCF Incubators and GrowFL. Thanks to the NBIA's partnership with BCC Research, we are afforded this access at a small fraction of the typical cost."Dr. Tom O'Neal, Executive Director UCF Business Incubation Program

"Innovation Park at Notre Dame uses incuTrack to organize and manage our facility and event resources. We also hope to use it to help track the progress of our future clients against mutually agreed-upon business milestones. Greg Bean and his team have not only provided a training and implementation program, but also helped us customize our interface with internal resources and systems that were already in place. We have found incuTrack to be a comprehensive solution that suits the organizational needs of our park." Natalie Stahl, Innovation Park at Notre Dame
