The mission of the CCIDC's Business Incubator Program is to provide a nurturing environment where entrepreneurs can pursue their dreams. No one entrepreneur can be expected to know everything. With the assistance of the CCIDC, entrepreneurs can build a vast network of advisors, identify sources of capital, utilize flexible office/lab space, and develop business skill sets.
To date, dozens of companies have graduated from the CCIDC Business Incubator Program. A majority of these emerging companies remain in Centre County and are now providing employment to over 1,000 people. These businesses provide economic stability for the region and are a vital part of the county's success.
