Cultivating Innovation

More than 600 incubation industry professionals from around the world gathered in St. Louis April 30 – May 3, 2006, for NBIA’s 20th International Conference on Business Incubation. During the event, conference attendees had the opportunity to discuss incubation industry best practices with professionals from more than 30 countries.

With more than 60 educational sessions, roundtable discussions and forum meetings, the conference also provided attendees with plenty of tools and information to implement at home. It wasn’t all work, though. There were also plenty of opportunities to relax and network with colleagues, including a tour of the Nidus Center for Scientific Enterprise and a reception at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
