The Incubator Without Walls program affords many of the same services as the traditional incubation program without the residency requirement. Program participants benefit from twice a month one-on-one business coaching via in person, conference call, or web conferencing.  Clients submit monthly financial statements for review and are provided access to incubator shared business machines, conference room, training center and mailboxes.
