The Online Business Incubator is an easy to use, free, one-stop online website with everything an urban entrepreneur needs to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to grow their micro-business and become more successful.
Are you a small business owner who would like to take your business to the next level?
Do you have a business idea, but are not sure how to get your idea off the ground?
Do you have a product but don’t know how to get it to market?
Do you want to learn to use online tools to make your business more efficient?
It is all online (although there will be opportunities to meet with mentors and other entrepreneurs face to face). You can
access the tools and communicate with your mentors from your place of business. You can set the times that are convenient for you.
¨ Mentors: OBI offers a team of high quality mentors for each participant so they can get the customized day to day support they need to be successful.
¨ Roadmap of Resources: Links to community organizations that can provide follow-on resources for continued success.
¨ An Entrepreneurial Community: A network of link-minded business people who can provide support and share best practices.
¨ Tools and Templates: A comprehensive data base of some of the best, easy-to-use business resources.
¨ Easy to Use: Access the site from any computer, anywhere, anytime.
¨ Visibility: Participation in OBI can help you access new customers and get the word out about your business.
OBI will go live in January 2012 and basic tools and templates will be available to all micro-businesses. OBI will enroll a group of 24 micro-entrepreneurs that will be able to access intensive mentoring in addition to a comprehensive set of tools and templates January–March 2012.
