Business Incubators in Mississippi

Business incubation is a dynamic process of business enterprise development. Incubators nurture young firms, helping them grow and prosper during the start-up period when they are most vulnerable. Incubators provide hands-on management assistance, access to financing and orchestrated exposure to critical business or technical support services. They also offer entrepreneurial firms shared office services, access to equipment, flexible leases, and expandable space – all under one roof.

If you would like to participate in the Incubator Network program, contact the Existing Industry & Business Division at 601.359.3593 or call the business incubator nearest you.
