What is a business incubator?

Business incubators are facilities that provide shared resources for young businesses, such as office space, consultants, and personnel.  They may also provide access to financing and technical support.  
For new businesses, these services provide a more protected environment in which to grow before they become self-sustaining. The ultimate goal of any business incubator is to produce viable businesses, called "graduates" of the incubator. From INC.com 

The Wisconsin Maritime Center of Excellence (WMCOE) business incubator is owned by the Marinette County Association for Business & Industry and operated by Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC). Its primary goal is to assist small businesses to become sustainable, successful companies and employers in the community. Providing industry related growth and quality of life opportunities for Marinette County businesses and residents.
