World, Enrich Your Community
16th International Conference on Business Incubation, Explore Your
World, Enrich Your Community, is shaping up to be our most internationally
charged conference yet. Building on last year's unprecedented level of
international attendees nearly 32 percent were from outside the
United States NBIA will travel to Toronto, Canada, for this year's
event. There we will assemble industry leaders from around the world for
four days of unparalleled knowledge sharing and networking. Hosting the
conference is the Toronto Business Development Centre, an incubator that
has been helping to develop and grow new and existing businesses for more
than a decade.
what better place for an international conference than Toronto? "Toronto"
is the Huron Indian word for "meeting place." NBIA encourages
the incubation world to come together in Toronto to meet with one another
and communicate the innovations, successes and bright future of our industry.
Now, more than ever, we must move beyond borders and look forward to the
possibilities of a shared perspective. Toronto is the perfect place to
gain that shared perspective, as cultural diversity flourishes in a mosaic
of distinctive neighborhoods. The city is home to more than 100 different
cultures, each with its own unique characteristics, choosing to come together
and live in one place.

Nearly three days of educational sessions and roundtable discussions
