Fostering Entrepreneurship Through Business Incubation: The Role and Prospects of Postsecondary Vocational-Technical Education (Report 2: Case Studies)

V. M. Hernandez-Gantes, R. P. Sorensen, A. H. Nieri

This document contains nine case studies and complements MDS-893, Fostering Entreprenuership Through Business Incubation: The Role and Prospects of Postsecondary Vocational-Technical Education (Survey Report). The case studies reveal current efforts of two-year technical colleges to work in partnership with business incubators, offer entrepreneurship courses, and provide other related services to local entrepreneurs. The cases are organized into three categories: rural, urban, and suburban settings. Case studies are further analyzed with an eye to understanding how two-year colleges can better support community economic development and efforts to serve women and "minority" entrepreneurs.
