Fayetteville, AR -- EquityNet, LLC is showing its support for entrepreneurial firms by sponsoring the National Business Incubation Association’s (NBIA’s) International Conference on Business Incubation May 16-19 in Orlando, Fla.

 

Business incubation programs facilitate the process of starting and growing companies by providing entrepreneurs with the expertise, networks and tools they need to make their ventures successful. NBIA estimates that in 2005 alone, North American incubators assisted more than 27,000 start-up companies that provided full-time employment for more than 100,000 workers and generated annual revenue of more than $17 billion. Approximately 7,000 business incubators operate worldwide.

 

"EquityNet’s relationship with NBIA is essential as we continue build brand awareness and seek market adoption," said Matthew Imhoff, EquityNet VP of Business Development. "We are pleased to be a part of the 2010 NBIA conference and we look forward to years of future support."

 

"We are pleased to have conference sponsors like these organizations,” said David Monkman, NBIA president and CEO. “They understand that entrepreneurial companies are catalysts for economic growth and job creation, and that business incubation can help turn struggling economies. This makes our sponsors stars in my book."

 

NBIA’s conference brings together leading business incubation professionals, economic development officials, public policymakers, university administrators and business assistance experts from around the world to share the industry’s best practices.

 

The four-day event at The Buena Vista Palace in Orlando, Fla., will include more than 60 workshops and roundtable discussions, exhibits and tours of area incubators.
