What is the value of an association of business incubators?

Entrepreneurial businesses are the economic engines of the Rocky Mountain region — past, present, and future. In order to fulfill the economic and societal promise that entrepreneurship offers, entrepreneurs across the Rocky Mountain West need increased and ready access to support services and opportunities like those offered by and through community-based business incubators. Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Utah are home to several national award-winning business incubators, and their contribution to the region’s economic vitality will be so much greater when their resources are better integrated. Recognizing the increasing need, a team of working business incubation professionals launched an initiative to enhance RMIC to fulfill the vision.
