Our Mission Statement
The Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center serves as a catalyst for innovative ideas by guiding the entrepreneurial process supporting the creation of sustainable, successful Coastal Bend businesses.
The Center plays a major role in promoting cross-disciplinary academic and entrepreneurial programs across the university:
Business Incubation: Business incubation is a support process that accelerates the successful development of innovative start-up and growing companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services. These services will be orchestrated by our incubator staff and offered both in the business incubator and through its network of contacts. Our incubator's main goal is to produce successful firms that will leave the program financially viable and freestanding. These incubator graduates have the potential to create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, commercialize new technologies, and strengthen local and statewide economies.
We provide clients access to appropriate rental space and flexible leases, shared basic business services and equipment, technology support services, professional PhD level consulting, student internship programs, coursework modeling and interaction, educational classes and assistance in obtaining the financing necessary for company growth.
Executive and Professional Education: Professional education support is critical to any business. We offer professional continuing education, seminars and workshops. Please see the education page for more details.
