INCUBATE - FINDING THE RIGHT SPACE TO GROW
KUCTC can help you find the right start-up incubator to meet your business requirements and surround you with peers, resources and mentors that share your passion.
Most incubators are sponsored by economic development organizations, partially subsidizing the costs and increasing the ancillary services offered to entrepreneurs. These services can range from professional services, connections to education and funding resources and even regulatory compliance and IP management.
