NBIA Review Online

In the June/July 2012 issue of the NBIA Review:

Coworking space: The business of serendipity
Coworking space provides opportunities for individuals or companies that might not yet – or ever – find their way into a traditional incubator. And it can provide a useful revenue stream from underutilized space.

Kitchen incubators help clients avoid heartache and heartburn
Kitchen incubators are increasingly popular but unlike any other kind of program. Client companies stay longer before graduating, and the distinction between incubation and rental space can sometimes become blurred. Kitchen incubation programs can find revenue streams by joining with educational institutions or by becoming involved in every aspect of food production. But adding a food incubation program is not to be undertaken lightly.

Indian tribe unites business development efforts in Oregon tourism region
Roseburg, Ore., is at the center of what local tourism officials call “The Land of Umpqua.” The region’s cold, clear steams draw trout anglers from all over the world, and its fertile mountainsides yield picturesque wineries, fueling the dominant industry of the region – tourism.

VETransfer: NBIA membership has its advantages
Membership in NBIA is an important part of the business plan at VETransfer, the Milwaukee-based incubation program for U.S. military veterans.

NBIA President's Award: Recognizing excellence in industry leadership
Leader, pragmatist, enthusiastic, organized, effective. These words only begin to describe this year’s NBIA President’s Award winner, Bonnie Herron, executive director of the Gwinnett Innovation Park and chief financial officer at Intelligent Systems in Norcross, Ga.

NBIA training adopts renewed focus on applied learning
NBIA’s certificate program is evolving to keep pace with changes in the incubation industry. Originally developed in 2007 from speaker input and attendee evaluations at NBIA training events, NBIA’s Incubator Management Certificate Program has been revised and updated to reflect changing needs of incubator managers in a condensed four-workshop model.
