The Lab – Business Incubator

The goal of The Lab Business Incubator is to develop current and aspiring entrepreneurs of all ages through rigorous accelerated business courses focused on using a business model canvas, which includes plans for infrastructure, value propositions, customer segments, channels, relationships, finance, and more. We offered this program in two cohorts – morning and evening – for four hours per week, for 16 weeks.

In addition to coursework, students are given many opportunities for practical application and are connected to a community of volunteer coaches, mentors, business experts, and local entrepreneurs, and receive significant one-on-one feedback and guidance from consultants and professionals.
