This is odd. Please help reseach this.

I need you to check your state for a "business incubator" program. Then check and see if there is a list of companies being incubated. Please tell me if biotech firms dominate the list or not. If they do in most states as they do in Maryland, we could have a bigger problem than I originally thought. Any info is appreciated. In fact, knowing my DP bretheren as well as I do, choose a state other than yours and check that one out.

I don't know how recently it was updated. I live in Florida and we have several. The link I posted at the end is for Incubators (general) in Florida. Have to get back to work.... Peace

IN PA the incubators are more regional

In certain area's there is alot of biotech, while in others they are still supporting web based project, or environmental technology.

The interesting thing is the connection of these incubators with the venture capital companies. It is shady, if you ask me, and from what I can tell from talking to people, they try to use certain "experts" to gain more control of the startups.

basically, you have an idea, you ask to develop it. the incubator says, sure, but lets have our expert look at it first to help evaluate it. If the expert likes it, it will go to the venture capital company who will fund it, IF you collaborate with the expert at the state university, and sign all these intellectual property agreements that gives both the venture capitalists, and the state a piece of the action.

So the ownership of intellectual property for a new High tech Idea always will end up either with some unholy combination of the state and venture capitalist, or you just sell out to one of the major biotech companies.

I dont know if mississippi has

a dominate number of Biotech incubator programs, but there appears to be quite a few.

Business Incubator program.

Wow. Florida has it too. http://www.fbiaonline.org/index.htm
These appear to be high tech, security, miltary, RFID, stealth etc. Did not run across any biotech on a quick searchover.

Massachusetts Association of Business Incubators (MABI)
http://www.massincubators.org/

I don't think there's anything wrong with the business incubator model, as long as it isn't funded at the Federal level. If the people of a state want it, it is their decision.

Oh, did I tell you, Massachusetts sales tax is going up 25% - from 5% to 6.25%. And that is on top of a 5% income tax!!!

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

See my posts below, it's international.

I like the concept a lot. I don't like the target industry or the leadership of the main ones.

Our sales tax just went up too.

It's true, it's

It's true, it's everywhere.

I also like the concept a lot, but governments should not be funding them at all.

Incubators are a product of the private sector, and that's where all the innovation comes from.

As far as I can tell from reading about them, copycat government programs are basically for giving money to their friends, while making it look like it's fair and anyone can get it on it.
