NBIA's 19th Fall Training Institute

Nov. 16-18, 2009
Phoenix, Ariz.

Ignite your passion for improving incubation practices during NBIA’s 19th Fall Training Institute, to be held Nov. 16-18 at the Ritz-Carlton in Phoenix. This event features workshops for industry professionals of all experience levels. Are you exploring the ins and outs of starting an incubation program? Sign up for Developing a Successful Incubator to learn the essential steps for building an incubation program.

Do you want to increase your professional credibility with a Certificate of Incubator Management? Don’t miss The Fundamentals of Incubator Management, which will teach you how to kindle industry best practices at your program, and Facilities Management, which will help you manage physical space effectively.

While the recession has caused financial strain, it also has provided a deeper understanding of what it means to be sustainable and how to thrive through hard economic conditions. To pull out of these difficulties, you need to envision the opportunities ahead. If you need to raise money to keep your program operational, you’ll want to attend An In-Depth Guide to Fundraising to learn how to generate revenue.

If you’re ready to fire up your clients, stakeholders and colleagues to move forward, Strategic Planning for Incubator Managers is just the training you need to plan for the future and assess your potential as a leader. These are just a few of the workshops offered at the Fall Training Institute that will help you blaze your path to success in entrepreneur support.
