NBIA has developed a suite of partner services designed to help us attract new customers, better cultivate our existing incubator relationships, and reduce the time between our first contact with prospects to our first sale. The NBIA Partner Program offers us a uniquely economical and effective way to reach and expand our target market: business incubators and their client companies.
