Need specific information fast? Try an NBIA Quick Reference!

Incubation professionals and researchers often contact NBIA looking for specific information on focused incubation topics. That’s why NBIA Publications developed NBIA Quick References, electronic documents focused on targeted incubation topics.

Each NBIA Quick Reference is a PDF of a feature article from the NBIA Review, the world’s only publication devoted to in-depth examination of business incubation, or an individual chapter from one of NBIA Publications’ high-quality books. There are over sixty documents currently available – here’s just a sampling of the topics covered:

  • Getting the most out of 501(c)(3) tax status – or qualifying for it in the first place
  • Best practices for specialized incubation programs
  • How to partner effectively with universities, governments and other sponsors
  • Developing optimal incubation facilities

Whether you’re developing an incubation program or working to improve the program you already have, NBIA Quick References are a quick and affordable way to get exactly the information you need.

PDFs will be e-mailed to you once your payment information is verified, which may take up to 72 hours if you are not ordering during normal business hours. To order securely online, or to see the variety of topics available for purchase, click here.
