Meredith Erlewine, MEASURING YOUR BUSINESS INCUBATOR'S ECONOMIC IMPACT: A TOOLKIT (2007).
Abstract (from publisher): This is a guide to collecting and disseminating economic impact information. In this small-but-mighty toolkit, you’ll find the rationale behind data collection, the 10 data points you should track, tips for ensuring cooperation from clients and graduates, advice on how to crunch the numbers, and suggestions for ways to get the news out to stakeholders and the public. In addition, separate surveys for clients and graduates and a spreadsheet for data collection are included on an accompanying CD-ROM.
Linda Knopp, 2006 STATE OF THE BUSINESS INCUBATION INDUSTRY (2007).
Abstract: An overview of what business incubators are and how they operate.
Pennsylvania Bar Institute, REPRESENTING START-UP BUSINESSES AND THE ROLE OF BUSINESS INCUBATORS (2006).
University of Michigan, NBIA, Ohio University and Southern Technology Council, BUSINESS INCUBATION WORKS (1997).
Abstract (from publisher): Business incubators reduce the risk of small business failures. Historically, NBIA member incubators have reported that 87 percent of all firms that have graduated from their incubators are still in business. In the general population, 66 percent of new firms survive at least two years, and 44 percent survive at least four years. It is important to note that these figures are not directly comparable, due to differences in survey methodology, time frame and other factors. However, looking at them side by side does strongly suggest that business incubation reduces the risk of small business failure and offers a valuable comparison.
