So much goes into creating a unique space like this for budding entrepreneurs – from the building and construction to operations (Security, utilities, on-site amenities), marketing, business recruitment, and more! Join us in Hamden to learn about their Borough 496 Incubator from A to Z. We will tour the facility and cover the entire process of how this once contaminated ex-middle school became the incubator that it is today – supporting small businesses and serving as a productive institution in a critical neighborhood in Hamden.


Learn about developing a business incubator in your own town by seeing and learning from a success story in Hamden, CT! Come be one of the first to see Hamden's new business incubator.
