Incubation

IMPACT 307’s innovation-driven incubator program provides deep expertise, coaching and shared resources to client start-ups with the goal of fostering the ideal setting for new venture growth.

Why Incubate?

When you become a client of an IMPACT 307 incubator, you become part of a positive, professional environment with individuals experiencing similar circumstances and challenges.

Clients receive individualized business counseling based on their stage of development. In addition, when you become a part of an incubator, you are connected to a network of resources, not just within the walls of your local facility, but the whole IMPACT 307 family.

Incubation as a tenant client also allows for shared amenities, such as conference rooms, coworking and other shared spaces, access to technology/software (such as Solidworks), plus internet and phone service that most startups cannot afford on their own. Daily interactions between staff and clients allow open and trusting relationships to develop much more quickly and foster innovative collaboration just steps away from your door.
