Abstract

Currently there are no comparative data representing the performance of the life science incubator industry. By developing performance standards based on this study, Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives and incubators nationwide can utilize these data to help monitor their incubator progress and evaluate their incubator performance. To obtain these data, a questionnaire was developed to recognize best practices and practical tools to monitor individual incubator performance and distributed to various incubators. The project also examined MBI's individual facilities performance to illustrate profitable performance areas. By continuing to obtain relative data, MBI can evaluate their incubator properly and develop practices to improve incubator performance.
