Started in 2013, the NBIC Tiger Tank, or Student Business Incubation Program, is a complimentary program provided to up to four qualifying Tennessee State University student businesses per year.  The year-long program offers an intensive summer study session with guest speakers from the business community.  The students are expected to interact and develop relationships with the speakers as part of their training.  Participants of the program receive all the services of the traditional incubating clients including shared office space.  Students also receive funding to provide them with necessary business tools including computers, collateral pieces and additional technology.

Prospective applicants should contact NBIC for application deadlines.

Applications for the 2015-2016 class have closed.
