Business Incubator Program
The Student Business Incubator Program is designed to support A-B Tech curriculum students who want to start their own businesses. Students interested in participating in this extracurricular program must submit an application and go through a selection process, which includes interviewing and presenting a business plan. Student-run businesses will then be selected to participate in this program, which is from July–June each year.
For biotechnology or light manufacturing companies with a significant capital investment, there is the possibility to complete the two-year incubation program and obtain Partner Status. Partner Status allows the company to remain in the incubator for an additional three years in order to complete commercialization or achieve positive cash flow and return on investment.
