We have seen great ideas die on the vine when they are not developed properly during the early stages of conception. It is critical to lay down a solid foundation that appropriately marries strategy with short-term building blocks while mitigating and/or managing risk along the way.
NAUP provides Business Incubation services for projects and/or entities that qualify. To clarify what a business incubator program is, Wikipedia.com defines it as a program designed to accelerate the successful development of entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services, developed and orchestrated by incubator management and offered both in the incubator and through its network of contacts. An incubator program differs from research and technology parks in its dedication to startups and early stage companies and its offering of business assistance services. Unlike the U.S. Small Business Administrationís Small Business Development Centers, and other similar programs, incubators serve only selected clients and are not obligated to serve anyone who asks for help. SBDCs also do not target startups or early stage companies.
NAUP provides Business Incubation services as a way to develop great ideas and promising projects into well-rounded energy solutions in an environment where institutional and enterprise-like resources are made readily available.
