  • Be in early stages of development and have a viable business proposition. Early stage means within the first 2 years of business operations, but small companies involved in a significant change in direction or launching a new business product or location may also apply.
  • Have the capacity for growth and provide economic benefits to the area such as creating new jobs, tax base expansion, and economic diversification.
  • Show the ability to pay rent while they develop positive cash flow.
  • Have a management team that can handle the technical aspects of the business. The management team will have entrepreneurial business acumen or be willing to accept the incubator’s assistance in the form of value-added services and guidance.
