Is Your City an Incubator? A Business Rockstars Minute

By Owen Linderholm | Small Business

We are continuing our series of Business Rockstars Minute videos that are excellently presented by Ken Rutkowski. They cover a range of small business topics, especially for entrepreneurs, and give you a real quick start on the topic and are a great point for jumping off. We are going to run these regularly and we will try to provide a few options for more in depth exploration on your own afterward. We also recommend that you check out their daily live shows over at Business Rockstars as well. But most importantly, please let us know what you think in the comments. We want your feedback on how you like these and on future topics.

You may or may not have heard of the idea of a business incubator. It is an organization or a setting of some sort that is created and designed to foster and grow businesses. Sometimes these are private organizations run by investors that try to invest in and grow businesses early in return for a stake in the business. And sometimes they are government run, either national or state or even local. Many cities put aside special areas or provide subsidies for new businesses in order to foster them and grow success within their locality. Ken Rutkowski discusses this concept and how to tell if your city is an incubator in this Business Rockstars Minute.
