Each year, the NBIA Incubation Awards honor the business incubators, client companies and graduates that exemplify the best in the industry. The diversity of our award winners is proof that excellence has many faces and that numbers alone never tell the whole story.
The NBIA Award Winners Showcase celebrates all that is possible through business incubation by highlighting these outstanding programs, clients and graduates.
Dinah Adkins, president and CEO of the National Business Incubation Association from 1988 to 2009, retired as the Association's chief executive in August, 2009. Her name has been synonymous with business incubation since 1988, when she assumed management of the Association. Even before that time, she was an industry pioneer, working in the field since 1982 and becoming a founding member of NBIA in 1985.
To honor Dinah, a fund has been set up in her name to support NBIA's Incubation Awards Program. Incubator of the Year winners will receive increased recognition for their achievement through cash awards made in Dinah's honor each year.
