SPARK Small Business Incubator
The Small Business Incubator assists new businesses in the early start-up phase and existing businesses that are re-tooling or reorganizing for greater success.
By offering space and basic office services, the SBI gives a client the foundation to get started or to move ahead without the worry of extensive overhead costs.
As part of SBI, member companies have access to The International Business Innovation Association resources, volunteer business partners that provide professional assistance including legal advice, accounting, credit management, financial planning, product development, and market research. The SBI's Mentor Program, provided through the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, matches clients with experienced small business owners who provide valuable insight into overcoming challenges, which is an integral part of an entrepreneur s future success. In addition, the SBI introduces clients to potential Venture Capital and Angel Investors who may be interested in growing new companies as an investment opportunity-- a win- win for the business as well as the community.
