For those organizations that play a key role in economic development in the region, either through an organization or as an entrepreneur, we hope you and others you work with are aware of and have been involved in the project already by receiving updates and attending meetings about the Incubator Initiative. Please note that the business incubator initiative does not intend to duplicate the many important services already provided to entrepreneurs by economic development coordinators, rather it plans to leverage them to assist entrepreneurs.
In order to enhance future collaboration between your business and/or organization and the business incubator, we encourage you to fill out a brief electronic entrepreneur or economic development leader questionnaire (links below), depending on which you identify with. The questionnaire will help us understand the specific resources and services your organization and/or business already provides to entrepreneurs, and how your organization and/or business and the incubator could best work together to enhance the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region.

In addition, it would benefit the study to distribute the entrepreneur survey to your client base, -- entrepreneurs in the region who you feel would benefit from this new initiative as well as contribute feedback to the study -- thus we can better understand how the incubator can best serve the entrepreneurial community of Clinton, Genesee, and Shiawassee region. Please forward this request, to your networks in the region.
If you have any questions, or would like to be added to the incubator project update list, please feel free to contact us:
