HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JULY 30, 2010:3 i SBDC Report Can usiness r Hel Start Your By STEVE CHAVEZlfor the SBDC When facing difficult times, it often becomes crucial for local governments to enhance eco- nomic development activities. Currently, there are numerous economic development activities on-going in our local communi- ties. One proposal for Grant County is a small business incu- bator. A business incubator, as de- fined by the National Business Incubation Association. is an en- tity that assists start-up and ex- isting small businesses. It often includes a building that houses several firms who share equip- ment and services. An incubator also provides specialized busi- ness assistance through training workshops and individualized programs. Business assistance programs, can also be made avail- able to firms that are not tenants of the incubator. An incubator forms the basis for a community of small business owners who sup- port and assist each other in the start-up and operauon of their businesses. Research has shown that businesses that start in an incubator have a much higher success rate than those that oper- ate independently. Once a busi- ness has reached stability, it "'graduates" and leaves the facil- ity making room for another.
