Abstract

The City of Worcester asked us to perform a feasibility study for a new business incubator. Through interviews we have identified the major target groups for the incubator, small businesses and creative industries, and assessed their needs. Through literature research and visits to existing incubators we collected information about important incubator's practices, building characteristics and funding strategies. Our recommendations also include working and learning opportunities that students will have in the incubator.
