Event Fees

NBIA realizes that the recent economic downturn has had a profound impact on business incubation and economic development programs worldwide. To make our training more affordable to those wanting to develop and operate successful entrepreneur support programs, we are offering our 2010 Fall Training Institute workshops at last year’s prices. We hope you’ll be able to join us in Philadelphia to learn best practices in helping entrepreneurs create thriving businesses that will create new jobs and help return the world’s economy to health.

The cost of your registration is determined by NBIA membership, when you register and the number of workshops you want to attend. All courses have limited enrollment. Registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Workshops include course materials, breakfast and lunch (for full-day workshops only).
