The Role of Business Incubators in the Economy

Suite 1620

Chicago, Illinois

Event Details

Box lunch will be provided.

Business Incubators are popping-up or gaining momentum throughout Chicago. Many are following models used in other regions throughout the country. Just what role do incubators play in developing new business ventures? What exactly do incubators do and with whom? Is a new business venture more likely to succeed because it came through an incubator? How many successful businesses never saw the inside of an incubator? Are incubators just "fish bowls" for select groups of investors or advisors to claim a piece of the pie from the next Facebook or Grubhub? **This is a moderated discussion forum among peers. Please read the articles below (posted two weeks before the event) before attending so you can more fully participate in the discussion.
