Through the Partner Program, companies and organizations develop an alliance with NBIA to provide products and services that are beneficial to NBIA’s members (and, if applicable, their client and graduate companies).
Typically, NBIA is looking for exclusive offers – deals that our members could not find elsewhere. In return, NBIA has identified several marketing vehicles to extend our Partners' reach to our members. The greatest benefits NBIA offers to its Partners are access to our members and their client companies and NBIA’s willingness to actively promote and market the Partner’s product/service year round.
As an NBIA Partner, your benefits will include sponsorship of our annual International Conference on Business Incubation. Depending on your level of sponsorship, your benefits may also include sponsorship of NBIA's annual Fall Training Institute. Conference sponsorship offers an invaluable opportunity to talk face-to-face with our members and reinforce the messages NBIA transmits year-round.

For more than 20 years, NBIA’s conference has served as the premier forum for business incubator managers and developers to share their experiences. Researchers, economic development professionals, public policy makers, venture capitalists, educators and others interested in incubation also participate in our conference. With more than 60 educational sessions, multiple preconference workshops, incubator tours, receptions and networking events, the International Conference is NBIA’s flagship event.
Being a sponsor means you’ll be recognized as an integral part of the event in all conference-related materials and activities. NBIA staff and board members will serve as ambassadors at the conference, helping to facilitate networking between your organization and the attendees. From the conference program to the exhibits to the opening keynote address, we’ll make it clear that there is a connection between your organization and the business incubation industry.
Whether your organization seeks to build relationships with other organizations that support entrepreneurship or the entrepreneurs themselves, you’ll make valuable connections by sponsoring NBIA’s International Conference.

NBIA’s annual Fall Training Institute (FTI) offers an intimate atmosphere for in-depth learning and informal networking. Attendees tell us they love FTI because it affords them lots of time for one-on-one networking with fellow attendees. Because participants get to know one another over the course of daylong workshops, they are able to build strong relationships that continue long after FTI comes to a close.
FTI offers the same opportunities for sponsors to build strong relationships with attendees. As an FTI sponsor, you’ll be able to tie your sponsorship to a specific workshop topic. You’ll get to participate in that workshop, which means you can spend quality time with attendees. You’ll also be able to network with all FTI attendees during breaks, lunches and the special sponsor’s reception.
Being a sponsor means you’ll be recognized as an integral part of the event in all FTI-related materials and activities. From the printed workshop materials to the FTI Web site to the sponsor’s reception, we’ll make it clear that there is a strong connection between your organization and the business incubation industry.
